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”.

Palm Sunday: Pope denounces indifference that the refugees are met with

2016-03-21

The Palm Sunday mass is the only papal ceremony that begins at the ancient obelisk in St. Peter's Square. There, the Pope blessed the palms and olive branches. He then participated in the choreographic procession towards the altar.

It is the first great mass of Easter and it remembers Jesus' arrival to Jerusalem when he was greeted with olive branches. The pope asked Catholics to revive these events in a personal way.

POPE FRANCIS
"Just as he entered Jerusalem, so he desires to enter our cities and our lives.”

The Pope recalled the physical and moral humiliation that Jesus suffered in those hours before he was crucified. He regretted that even today, nations of Christian origin throughout Europe are degrading many refugees.

POPE FRANCIS
"Jesus also experiences in his own flesh indifference, since no one wishes to take responsibility for his fate. And I think of the many people, so many outcasts, so many asylum seekers, so many refugees, all of those for whose fate no one wishes to take responsibility.” 

Because there were so many pilgrims at St. Peter's when he finished mass, the Pope rode in the popemobile and toured the square to greet them close up.
