Pope Francis: No people is criminal and no religion is terrorist

February 17, 2017. Pope Francis has sent an important message to the Meetings of Popular Movements that is taking place in Modesto (California). The pope denounces the "moral blindness of this indifference”: "under the guise of what is politically correct or ideologically fashionable, one looks at those who suffer without touching them. But they are televised live; they are talked about in euphemisms and with apparent tolerance, but nothing is done systematically to heal the social wounds or to confront the structures that leave so many brothers and sisters by the wayside”.

Pope Francis met with the head of another very small state, Prince Albert II of Monaco. He was joined by his wife Charlene, who was dressed in white (as Catholic royalty are permitted to do when meeting the Pope). They thanked the Pope for sending them a message after the baptism of their twins last May.

The Mediterranean royalty and Pope Francis discussed the environment, humanitarian aid, peace, security, and the migration in Europe and the Middle East. 

"This is my translator.”

Following a closed door conversation, they exchanged gifts. Prince Albert gave Pope Francis a small medallion, and he also brought a basket filled with fruit and a cheese platter.

"I hope it's good cheese.”

They also gave him a version of the papal encyclical "Laudato Si” that is distributed in their territory.

For his part, Pope Francis gave them a copy of his apostolic exhortation, Evangelii Gaudium, along with a Saint Martin medallion. The Pope explained to them that he protected the most needy, and asked them to do the same.
