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 ignore the suffering of man is to ignore God

2016-04-27

"To ignore the suffering of man is to ignore God." The Pope gave a heartfelt catechesis in St. Peter's Square before a moved crowd.

Pope Francis reflected on the parable of the Good Samaritan. He said that those who ignored the suffering of the wounded man were people who, in theory, should have known what love is because they were the ones who best knew God. However, it is one thing to know what love is, and another thing to love. And those who truly love do not ignore the suffering of others.

POPE FRANCIS
"What does it mean to ignore the suffering of man? It means to ignore God. If I do not approach that man, that woman, that child, that old man, that old woman who suffers, I do not get close to God."

Love, the Pope explained, it is not a theory, but something that has an impact on concrete life each day.

He who loves sacrifices himself, he who loves does not remain indifferent to the suffering of others. He who loves, like God, feels compassion. And so, those who believe themselves superior do not believe in the mercy of God.

POPE FRANCIS
"Each of us can ask ourselves the question and answer in our hearts. Do I believe? Do I believe that the Lord has compassion for me? As a sinner, with many problems, many things. Think about it. The answer is yes. But everyone should look into their hearts in order to have faith in the compassion of God, the God who is good, who approaches us and heals us, caresses us, and if we reject Him waits for us, patient, and always with us.”

Pope Francis concluded by recalling that this parable is an invitation to imitate the example of the Good Samaritan.
