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 meeting, which was held in private, took place in an office in Paul VI Audience Hall, a very different environment from the one where they met the last time. 

On that occasion, they met during a public audience in which Maduro was accompanied by a large entourage. On this occasion, his meeting was a one-on-one with the pope

According to the statement issued by the Vatican, this meeting takes place in the midst of a "worrysome political, social, and economic situation the country is going through, which is having serious repercussins in the daily life of the people.”

Pope Francis has also asked Maduro that he "take up the path of constructive and honest dialogue to ease the suffering of the people, especially the poor,” and that he foster "the promotion of a climate of renewed social unity, which will enable a new perspective of hope for the future of the nation.”

This is the second time the pope and Nicolás Maduro meet in the Vatican. The first was in 2013. A second visit was scheduled in 2015, but Maduro canceled at the last moment for medical reasons.
