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 Brazilian sculpture in the Vatican Gardens

2016-09-06

On Saturday, the pope inaugurated a bronze statue of the patron saint of Brazil, Our Lady of Aparecida, in the heart of the Vatican Gardens.

The sculpture is a gift from the Embassy of Brasil to the Holy See and the Archdiocese of Aparecida.

Cardinal Raymundo Damasceno Assis and a small group of people joined Pope Francis who, in a very grave tone, asked them to pray for Brazil:

POPE FRANCIS
"I invite you to pray so that Our Lady continues to protect Brazil, and the Brazilian people, in this sad moment.”

The unstable political status quo in Brazil worries the pope. He even sent a personal letter to ex-president Dilma Rousseff, who was undergoing impeachment at the time.

The pope also raised doubts about the trip to Brazil he had promised back in the 2013 WYD in Rio

POPE FRANCIS
"In 2013 I said I would come back in 2017: I don't know if that's possible, but at least I will have her close to me, here.”

The Pope finished this short ceremony by saying a Hail Mary, and he also asked the participants to sing the traditional song that is always sung in the Shrine of Aparecida.
