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”.

2016-01-25

Pope Francis will participate in a joint ceremony of the Catholic church and the World Lutheran Federation on October 31, 2016.

This event in Sweden is part of the reception process of the study document "From Conflict to Communion,” which was published in 2013, and has since been widely distributed to Lutheran and Catholic communities.

The Pope is scheduled to visit the southern city of Lund to commemorate the 500th Anniversary of the Reformation; where the Lutheran World Federation was founded back in 1947. 

This will be the first time since Pope John Paul II visited Sweden back in 1989.

Pope Francis welcomed Queen Silvia of Sweden, to the Library of the Vatican's Apostolic Palace in April of 2015. 

One by one, members of her delegation greeted the Pope. Perhaps, the most memorable moment was when the Queen's one-year-old grand daughter stole the show. 

This one-day event will highlight the important ecumenical developments that have taken place during the past 50 years of dialogue between Lutherans and Catholics.
