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”.

The Vatican remains calm: Pope does not change his Holy Week schedule

2016-03-22

The Vatican spokesman has confirmed that the Pope maintains his schedule for Holy Week, during which he will participate in four major public ceremonies at the Vatican and at the Colosseum in Rome.

Security measures have been increased throughout Rome and the Vatican, although there are no signs of a threat.

Since the beginning of the Jubilee, security measures have been noticeably visible in order to control pilgrims entering the Vatican. In fact, many have criticized the measures because they have  hindered accessibility to the basilica.

Tomorrow, the Pope will have the general audience in St. Peter's Square. The number of pilgrims in attendance will give us a clue as to whether or not the fear of attacks will affect Easter in Rome.
