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 at canonization: God has compassion with the death of people

2016-06-06

Maria Elisabeth Hesselblad and Stanislaus of Jesus and Mary are now officially declared saints. He read this formula that declared them saints as their tapestries adorn the altar in a large ceremony presided over by Pope Francis in St. Peter's Square.

In his homily, Pope Francis reflected on the passion, death and resurrection of Christ. He said the lives of the two new saints reflect this mystery.

POPE FRANCIS
"This was the experience of Stanislaus of Jesus and Mary, and Maria Elizabeth Hesselblad, who today are proclaimed saints. They remained deeply united to the passion of Jesus, and in them, the power of his resurrection was revealed.”

The Pope explained that God does not remain unmoved by the death of people because He himself experienced what it is to die. He also sympathized with those who mourn the death of a loved one, such as the widow of Nain who lost her son. 

POPE FRANCIS
"Jesus asks to takes our death upon himself, to free us from it and to restore our life. The young man then awoke as if from a deep sleep and began to speak. Jesus "gave him to his mother”  Jesus is no wizard! It is God’s tenderness incarnate; the Father’s immense compassion is at work in Jesus.”

St. Stanislaus of Jesus and Mary founded the Congregation of Marian Fathers of the Immaculate Conception of the Most Blessed Virgin Mary, the first religious order founded in Poland and the first male order dedicated to the Immaculate Conception. Today, it has about 60 houses in 10 countries and 500 members, of which 345 are priests. He won great fame as a confessor and preacher, he was also chaplain of the Polish troops during the war against Turkey in Ukraine in 1674.

Maria Elisabeth Hesselblad was born in Sweden in 1870 within a Lutheran family. She converted to Catholicism a few years later and dedicated her life to working for the unity of Christians, especially in northern Europe. She founded a new form of the Bridgettines known as the Bridgettine Sisters. She endured the Second World War in a convent in the Eternal City where dozens of people fled and hid many Jews. A work that earned her the recognition of Righteous Among the Nations.
