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”.

2016-07-06


Throughout the month of July, the Pope has canceled all public appearances and meetings but for this group of 200 poor, sick and disabled pilgrims, the Vatican had its doors wide open.

They come from France and belong to the ATD Fourth World, founded by Father Joseph Wresinski in 1957.

Pope Francis heard some of their testimonies and then told them that they are at the heart and treasure of the Church.

POPE FRANCIS
"Dear friends, I am very happy to be with you. Your presence is important to me, and it is also important that you can feel at home here.”

He said that the Church must reach out to all of those who experience abandonment and rejection because Christ has always given them priority in his life.

He also asked them to pray for those that cause poverty and, especially, for those who can help but choose to look the other way and live only for their own welfare and their position of power.

Toward the end, he took his time and greeted everyone present one-by-one, showing continuous gestures of affection.
