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”.

The Sunday Angelus also fell on the World Day of Migrants and Refugees. Thousands of such migrants made a pilgrimage to the Vatican to pass under the Holy Door. They also brought a famous cross from Lampedusa with them. The cross was made of wood from ships carrying refugees to the Italian coast. The Pope offered them words of encouragement.

POPE FRANCIS
"Do not let anything steal your hope and the joy of life that derive from experiencing divine mercy, thanks also to those who welcome you and help you.”

From the window of the study in the Apostolic Palace, the Pope also spoke about victims of recent terrorist attacks.

POPE FRANCIS
"I invite everyone together to pray to God for the victims of attacks in recent days in Indonesia and Burkina Faso. May the Lord welcome them into His house, and support the commitment of the international community to build peace.”

The Pope also welcomed inmates from Italy's biggest prison, which is in the city of Opera. He thanked them for the hosts that they made, which a few minutes later would be used during a Mass with immigrants and refugees that participated in the pilgrimage to St. Peter's.
