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”.

"Whatever our differences - our different ways of seeing things, our ecclesial or spiritual sensibilities - together we can be of service to the mission of the Church.”

The network came about 170 years ago. Until recently, it was called the "Apostleship of Prayer.” Now it has opted for new technologies to spread in unique and modern ways the Pope’s prayer requests.

"We thought that the videos could help more people to know the intentions of the Holy Father and that was really the way to help Pope Francis enter into a relationship with each person to mobilize prayer and mission efforts today to face the challenges of our world."

In his first video which was released last January, Pope Francis asked for prayers for interreligious dialogue. The message reached millions of people, but also garnered criticism from some.

"We have to try what can be best interpreted mainly because it is to help spread the Pope’s message and engage people with it. We try also to use the modern languages which can touch the hearts of people today, because if we want to encourage prayer, we must use the language people understand and reachers their hearts."

Each month they will launch a new video that will surprise and will continue to generate conversation, because they try to address the great challenges of humanity. And precisely because it challenges the world, it needs prayers.
