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 to Scots College: The courage of only 16 men have borne fruit in Scotland

2016-04-14

On Thursday, Pope Francis received members of the Pontifical Scots College in Rome. It has been 400 years since 16 young Scots return to their country clandestinely as priests to preach the Gospel in a Protestant territory.

They put their lives at risk. A year earlier, the priest John Ogilvie was tortured and killed there by celebrating Mass in secret.

POPE FRANCIS
"The 'yes' proclaimed by the 16 men 400-years-ago was eloquent not simply for their good intentions, but rather because they persevered, and prepared themselves in every way, returning to Scotland to face the hardships that awaited them, even if it meant becoming martyrs themselves.”

Pope Francis said those 16 priests "bore fruit in Scotland" and invited to take the example of their ardor to witness God's mercy.
