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 denounces the lack of will from those with power to end the war in Syria

2016-08-08

During the Angelus, Pope Francis lamented that civilians, especially children, are the victims who suffer the most from the war in Syria. He also made this powerful comment.

POPE FRANCIS
"Unfortunately, we continue to hear the news on Syria's civilian casualties of war, especially in Aleppo. It is unacceptable that so many defenseless people, many children also have to pay the price of conflict, the price of the stubbornness of heart and peace unwillingness of those in power."

He invited the pilgrims to have a moment of silence and pray for the Syrian people. Afterwards, they prayed a Hail Mary together.

The pope also explained that often evil is unleashed when a person feels they own the life of another.

POPE FRANCIS
"So many injustices, violence and everyday evils are born of the idea of behaving like 'the gatekeepers' in charge of other people's lives.”

He recalled that in this life there is no point holding on to material things or money because it will not serve us after death. He said that it should be used to serve others.

POPE FRANCIS
"We cannot be so attached to money, to have so many things... Because, in the end, we can not take them with us. Remember that 'the shroud has no pockets.'"

Finally, he said that the fact that God promises eternal life does not mean there is not work to be done in order to improve the living conditions of this world, especially for the weakest.
