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 to Armenians: Your sufferings are among the most terrible in human memory

2016-06-23

As he usually does before each international trip, the Pope sent a video message to the locals.

Pope Francis told Armenians that he is going as a pilgrim and as a brother. He acknowledges the tragedy that their ancestors have lived and says he feels both pain and admiration.

POPE FRANCIS
"For you have found in Jesus’ Cross and in your own wits, the wherewithal ever to pick yourselves up and start anew – even after sufferings that are among the most terrible in human memory."

The Pope gave them encouragement to continue working for reconciliation and not give up. He remembered the example of Noah, who did not give up in his efforts to find land after the flood. An example that is not accidental because tradition says that the Ark stopped at Mount Ararat, the symbol of Armenia.
