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”.

"In God's economy, we are the poorest of the poor, poorer than ever because we think ourselves rich. Our money and wealth is like the toy money in a children's game: it may buy goods in our human economies which seem so powerful, but in the economy of God, it is worthless. We are only truly rich when we accept mercy from God, through Christ our Savior.”

POPE FRANCIS
"The victims of war, which stains people with hate and the Earth with weapons, they plead for peace; our brothers and sisters, who live under the threat of bombs and are forced to leave their homes into the unknown, stripped of everything, plead for peace.”

During the vigil, every country where there is currently a war was mentioned, from Afghanistan to North and South Korea. There were 27 countries and conflict zones. They also mentioned the violence in Central America, the fights provoking drug trafficking in Mexico, the tension in Venezuela or the war in the Holy Land, Syria and Iraq.

They also remembered priests and religious who are currently kidnapped or detained because of these conflicts.
