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”.

The “Pokémon Go” craze has arrived in the Vatican

2016-07-21

The rush for the app, Pokémon Go affects everyone, regardless of who is actually a participant. This augmented reality game, suitable for all audiences, has become the undisputed worldwide star of the past few weeks. The trend has also reached the Vatican, where rumor has it, Arceus, the Pokémon god, is located.

"I was looking for a Pokémon. It said it was a legendary one, so I came here looking for that Pokémon. But I think it's difficult to find it, he said me to look in the Holy Door, so now I'm looking for my friend."

According to players, any time of day is perfect to  hunt for pokémons, even if it means having to deal with hundreds of tourists. There are several sites where one can search for these creatures. For example, the window where the Pope prays the Angelus or the fountains of St. Peter's Square.

"I've been here the last few days walking and playing Pokémon while doing tourism and has been quite fun."

According to a study from a brand of bracelets that records physical activity, Pokémon Go users have doubled their walking distance after having downloaded the application.

"This application has made me go out more than I usually go out. In this last week, I would have walked over the thirty, forty kilometers."

"I have played close to the Vatican and I have to admit, it's a good hobby. Certainly there are times you have to be careful around you to avoid incidents. It's a fun and good app, but should be played carefully and responsibly."

Some users have suffered accidents, like not looking before crossing the street, while trying to hunt for pokémons.

While this entertainment is not dangerous in and of itself, it's always beneficial to pay a little more attention to real life than hunting pokémons.
