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: God does not conform to our demands. Prayer is not magic

2016-05-25

There are two types of people to whom the Pope has no trouble stopping the pope mobile and getting down to greet them: children and the elderly.

At the general audience, he brought several children up with him on the popemobile and then moved everyone as he climbed down the jeep with his rosary in hand, as he gave it to an elderly woman in the audience. 

"She has been operated. She has had eye surgery. Today is her birthday.”

Minutes later, he explained the parable of the widow who gets heard by a judge by insisting without fail. God said to do the same but emphasized an important detail to keep in mind when praying.

POPE FRANCIS
"As Jesus in Gethsemane, we must pray entrusting everything to the heart of the Father, without claiming that God conform to our requirements, ways or times, this causes tiredness or discouragement, because we feel that our prayers are not heard.”

Pope Francis said that prayer is not a "magic wand” to solve the problems but a way of approaching God.

POPE FRANCIS
"Prayer is not a magic wand. It is not a magic wand. It helps keep faith in God and trust Him even when we do not understand his will.”

The Pope concluded by explaining that God will give men what they need but at the right time and when appropriate.

And finally, the Pope did not want to miss an opportunity by recalling the recent terrorist attacks in Syria.

POPE FRANCIS
"Last Monday in Syria, beloved Syria, some terrorist attacks occurred that resulted in the death of hundreds of civilians. I ask all prayers, prayers to the merciful Father, prayers to the Virgin for the victims rest, comfort to families and convert the heart of those who sow death and destruction.”

The Pope also invited those present to participate Thursday in the Mass and in the procession of Corpus Christi which traditionally starts in the cathedral of Rome, at St. John Lateran.
