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”.

Mother Angelica: The nun who revolutionized the media landscape of Catholicism

2016-03-31

She was, without doubt, one of the most familiar faces of the Catholic Church in the United States and died this weekend at age 92.

In 1981, with only $200 she founded her own TV network: EWTN. She made the first transmissions from the garage of her monastery and today this programming channel broadcasts 24 hours a day in 144 countries.

This sympathetic nun gained much success with her program, where she would respond to an audience, with complete clarity and tenderness to the questions about God and life. 

What television could not show is that her life was anything but easy. By the time she was six years old, her father abandoned her and her mother. A disease marked her youth until she was 20-years-old and she was miraculously cured. 

At 21, she decided to enter a convent in secret because of opposition from her mother. At 30, she  was left almost paralyzed by an accident.

She managed to fund a monastery with the money she got from selling handmade hooks. Despite all of her success, something that stuck with most of the people who knew her was her devoted life of  prayer. In fact, she participated in Eucharistic adoration several hours a day.

With her sense of goodness and fresh outlook, she led Catholic television where it had never been before: on the televisions of millions around the world.
