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”.

Pope Francis at the general audience: We should not fear our miseries

2016-04-06

Christ's entire life on Earth has been to stand together with men to demonstrate His compassion. This was the message that the Pope sent during the sunny general audience in St. Peter's Square.

POPE FRANCIS
"Jesus has not brought hatred, he has not brought enmity. He has brought love, a great love, open to all, for all of us.”

He said that God, being perfect, wanted to stand in line with the sinners so they would not be afraid to confess their sins. Unlike man, he does not judge, but rather, forgives.

POPE FRANCIS
"How many times do we accuse others of being sinners. And you? Each of us should ask ourselves: if he is a sinner, then who am I? We are all sinners but we are all forgiven. We all have the ability to receive this pardon that is the mercy of God."

The Pope invited people to accept their own sinfulness, not with shame or fear of feeling like a failure, but in the hope of a child who knows that his father will not hesitate to forgive him if asked.

POPE FRANCIS
"We should not fear our miseries. Each of us has them. The power of the love of the Crucifixion  knows no obstacles and is never exhausted."

Last week, the Pope had concluded a cycle of catechesis dedicated to explaining mercy in the Old Testament. This general audience begins a cycle centered around the New Testament.
