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”.

United Nations study: about 12 percent of the global population are seniors aged 60 and over

2016-06-11

Pope Francis' sixth prayer intentions video has once again captured another challenge that humanity faces with his intent in finding solidarity for the elderly, sick and marginalized. 

A 2014 study conducted by the United Nations World Urbanization found that about 12 percent of the global population are seniors (age 60 and older). Many are displaced and die each year from starvation and other physical or mental illnesses than any other age group. That number is expected to double to 20 percent by the year 2050.

As time progresses and the world’s population continues to age, global homelessness, hunger and displacement are becoming a growing concern.

The Pope is promoting awareness to a population that is largely sidelined by a majority on an international level.
