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”.

Stories of the homeless who met the pope in Rome

2016-11-12

As often happens in life, surprises pop up when they are least expected. These homeless people experienced a taste of this after traveling to Rome to be with Pope Francis for the occasion of the Jubilee of Mercy.

They come from 22 countries and would never have imagined that they would be able to visit Rome, and even less, to be so close to the pope.

"It is a blessing. I feel peace ... many things."

"This is all very special: meeting with the pope, praying with the ope. There are many... sensations, yes, that's it."

While they are in difficult situations, they prefer to focus on the present moment and their encounter with the pope.

"Difficult situation."
"Extremely... The situation is difficult for all of us. But we came here and we're waiting."

Pope Francis has always remembered the poor, especially during this year of the Jubilee of Mercy, and his visitors feel the warmth of his words especially now.

"Rome is very beautiful, the pope has called us to come here and I am very happy to see the pope."

Perhaps this visit will not give them a roof when they return to their countries and their lives, but they say they consider themselves enriched to have had an opportunity that many others only dream of.
