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”.

A look at the plane that will take Pope Francis from Mexico back to Rome

2016-02-07

Pope Francis will travel nearly 16,000 miles during his six-day trip to Mexico, spending more than 31 hours on an airplane. For the final leg of his voyage, perhaps the most tiring part, the Vatican has chosen to use a particular plane: an Aeroméxico Boeing 787-8 Dreamliner. It's one of the most modern commercial airplanes in the world.

It has only been available for four years, and plenty of airplane companies have yet to acquire the new model. The design reduces turbulence. Inside, its pressure and humidity decreases the adverse affects long flights can have on the body.

For a Pope who needs every ounce of energy, it could make a difference. The plane will be used on the flight from Mexico City to Juarez on February 17th and for the return journey to Rome. That will be an 11 hour flight home after a week that would leave anyone exhausted.

As is tradition, the Pope's coat of arms will be embroidered on every seat inside the flight. Whether they all remain there at the end of the flight is another question.
