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 at Casa Santa Marta: God always forgives

2016-01-29

During his Friday morning homily at Casa Santa Marta, Pope Francis made a distinction between regular sinners and truly corrupt ones. Normal sinners feel the need for forgiveness. Corrupt ones think it isn't necessary.

POPE FRANCIS
"The Lord always forgives. But one of the ugliest things about corruption is that the one who becomes corrupt has no need for forgiveness. He doesn't feel it.”

The Pope added that it was necessary to pray for everyone to be freed from the grip of corruption: from the Pope all the way to the laity.

SUMMARY OF THE POPE'S HOMILY
(Source: Vatican Radio)

"Corruption – from which David was saved by the grace of God – had wounded the heart of that "courageous youth” who had faced the Philistine with a sling and five small stones. "Today I want to emphasize only one thing,” the Pope concluded. "There is a moment where the attitude of sin, or a moment where our situation is so secure and we see well and we have so much power” that sin "stops” and becomes "corruption.” And "one of the ugliest things” about corruption is that the one who becomes corrupt thinks he has "no need for forgiveness.”

"Today, let us offer a prayer for the Church, beginning with ourselves, for the Pope, for the Bishops, for the priests, for consecrated men and women, for the lay faithful: ‘Lord, save us, save us from corruption. We are sinners, yes, O Lord, all of us, but [let us] never [become] corrupt!’ Let us ask for this grace.”
