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”.

Padre Pio pilgrims in Rome: “I've prayed to him and he has listened”

2016-02-05

Tens of thousands of people joined in the streets of Rome during the transfer of the relics of Padre Pio to St. Peter's Basilica. They come from Italy, Spain, Ireland and even Poland. Together, they created a human corridor of several kilometers.

ROMAN RUSEK
"I have come with 600 Polish pilgrims who lead prayer groups in various parts of Poland. It took us two hours by plane and then we took a bus. We came to honor the Padre Pio and say that we are his spiritual children.”

The history of this twentieth century Italian monk may not appear in the history books. But many consider him as someone who has changed their lives.

VALENTINA D'ANDREA
"My faith was born when I was little because my mother, my family, are devotees of Padre Pio. My mother always made the pilgrimage and I went with her. It has been passed down from generation to generation. we confide in him, especially when encountering a difficult moment in life.”

MERCEDES VICENTE
"I met him through Father Antonio Pesquera, who was a disciple of Padre Pio and he told me many wonders that he had lived with him, he instilled in me the faith of  Padre Pio, he gave me a movie, a book of his life and it all started from there. I have great devotion because I have asked for things. At face value, people may think they are coincidences, but my experiences are more like little miracles. Padre Pio's hand is behind it.”

Padre Pio's relics come to Rome and so are the stories of his miracles and heard requests. Sonia said that she once heard him speak to her in a dream.

SONIA PALADINI
"I dreamed something I have not managed to decipher: he was in a chair and turned to me seriously, very seriously, four plus four. I have not yet managed to understand what it meant, if it has already happened or if it will happen, but it was very serious.”

Stories and emotions about a simple monk have brought about the gathering of many to give thanks for a few hours or ask for help from the saint who never left his small village, but is now known throughout the world.
