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”.

Argentine priests meet with Pope Francis...but forget to bring mate

2016-01-26

They're Argentine students studying in Rome and living at the Argentine Priestly College. They had a meeting with Pope Francis in which the Pope gave them advice as pontiff...and also as an experienced priest.

MSGR. SERGIO OSVALDO BUENANUEVA
Bishop of San Francisco (Argentina)
"It was really an extraordinary experience. I would describe it as a family meeting, because there was almost no formality. He received us, he met with us, we all sat together, and he simply said, 'It's good to be here. Ask me whatever you want. If you want to criticize me about something, do it.'”

Sergio Osvaldo Buenanueva is one of the bishops that pastorally guides the Argentine Priestly College in Rome. He brought along these priests in training during his visit to Rome.

Also in attendance was the Vice Rector of the College. He had a confession: He forgot to bring the Pope mate, a traditional Argentine drink and one of the Pope's favorites.

FR. DANIEL FORCONESI
Vice Rector,  Argentine Priestly College
"No, no, no. He was gracious and didn't complain that we didn't bring mate.”

The bishops sent the Pope a special message from Argentina and said he was very excited to hear it.

MSGR. SERGIO OSVALDO BUENANUEVA
Bishop of San Francisco (Argentina)
"We told him, 'Thank you for receiving us and know that we are praying. Argentina prays for you, the National Church of Argentina, in which there are Italians, Argentines, and other nationalities, we pray for you.' And here the Pope was really moved and that moved us as well.”

The young priests said they would love to see the Pope again, not in Rome, but instead in Argentina.
