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”.

MSGR. MIGUEL ANGEL AYUSO GUIXOT
Secretary, Pontifical Council Interreligious Dialogue
"Religions are not the cause of the problem but part of the solution; therefore religious leaders have the responsibility to come together, meet to propose values.”

Pope Francis says the world is bleeding in a time of  "piecemeal Third World War.” Not just by two fragments, but hundreds of conflicting positions fighting each other.

To end this situation, the pope follows in the footsteps of his predecessors John Paul II in 1986 and Pope Benedict XVI in 2011. The current pontiffs visit and encounter with the leaders of other religions, gives a firm message of unity in diversity in a world unable to communicate.
