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”.

How to contact Pope Francis?

2016-04-30

Have you ever wondered.. How does one contact the Pope himself? He is one of the most important leaders in the world, so the mission is not that simple.

The more traditional option is to send a formal request to his residence by mailing a letter to the  Vatican. This requires directing the envelope to Sua Santità Francesco' with the address: Segretería di Stato, Palazzo Apostolico Vaticano, 00120, Città del Vaticano. 

For those who do not want to send an envelope to Rome, you can contact the Apostolic Nunciature in each country to facilitate contact with the Vatican.

The latest option is Twitter. However, the pontiff has yet to respond to any of his followers tweets from any of his twitter handles like  @Pontifex And who knows if any of these messages actually  reaches the Pope. 

If you happen to be in Rome, there are two ways in which to see Pope Francis in person every week: at his general audience, held every Wednesday or at his Sunday Angelus, where the Pope appears from his window. With the latter, your view of the pontiff is not as close or as good. 

In order to be able to participate in his general audience, a reservation must be made online as well as an early arrival time on the day of the event so that you can get close to the barriers where the Pope will come out from the pope mobile. Many pilgrims try to talk to him and it is not always easy to be heard but some manage to get his attention. 

In any case, try giving him your personal phone number. Just ask these nuns from Spain, which the Pope called in person in 2013.

POPE FRANCIS

"What are the nuns doing that they can't answer the phone? I am Pope Francis, I wish to greet you as the year comes to a close. I'll see if I can call you back later. May God bless you.”
