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”.

Sikh Indians attend St. Teresa's canonization ceremony

2016-09-05

While millions of Catholics are thrilled about attaining a new saint, it is not only Catholics who came to Rome to celebrate the life of Mother Teresa

Many from around the world came because they respect her proposals and the work that she did, including this group, originally from India.

CHANDRA BIKUMANDLA
"We actually came here to see Mother Teresa's special occasion here and we are all associated to Mother Teresa. Not just myself, all the people, billions of people who are in India. Everybody knows Mother Teresa. She's done so much work in Calcutta and the work has been carried over in many, many nations-everybody knows her." 

This group says honoring the saint has nothing to do with her religion, but rather her push for peace in the world by reaching out to each person on the streets.

TEJPAL DULAY
"My religion is Sikh and we want to work with all religions, each other, and we want peace in the world. That's my hope.” 

While the men currently live in London, they say their roots are still tied to India, where they all were born. 

They are very passionate about the work the Indian government is doing to help the poor and assist the Missionaries of Charity. In fact, they each have dedicated themselves to continuing to carry out Mother Teresa's mission in their daily lives.

TERSAME MAAN
"We obviously still think about India and the people there. Hopefully there will be an improvement in living conditions for the poor, that's what we're trying to do.”

They are inspired by the Chief Minister of Delhi, who worked with the Missionaries of Charity in Calcutta and also attended the canonization.
