The Pope’s Mass at the Air Defense Stadium in Cairo: “Any other fanaticism does not come from God and is not pleasing to him! The more we grow in faith and knowledge, the more we grow in humility and in the awareness of our littleness”
“The only fanaticism believers can have is that of charity!” In the first and only great crowd embrace of his Egyptian trip, Pope Francis meets the Coptic Catholic community celebrating a Mass in the Air Defense Stadium. The facility, also known as the “June 30th Stadium”, is part of the Military Air Force Sports Village, built and operated by the Egyptian Defense Ministry to celebrate the valor of the aviation defense during the “war of attrition” fought with Israel and ended in 1970. Initially, the celebration was not planned here, but the new destination was chosen to allow a greater attendance of the faithful: the stadium can hold up to 30,000. There are Catholics of various rites, but also Orthodox and Muslims. Continue reading ““The only fanaticism believers can have is that of charity! ˮ”

The biggest trend for mad scientists now is the Aedes aegypti mosquitoes – the same mosquitoes that are noted for carrying tropical diseases and for getting genetically engineered under the guise of fighting the Zika. Zika is one of the latest banners of scare porn that the mainstream media has foisted on the public in a seeming attempt to pave the way for biotech companies to operate unhindered.

Good evening – or, good morning, I am not sure what time it is there. Regardless of the hour, I am thrilled to be participating in your conference. I very much like its title – “The Future You” – because, while looking at tomorrow, it invites us to open a dialogue today, to look at the future through a “you.” “The Future You:” the future is made of yous, it is made of encounters, because life flows through our relations with others. Quite a few years of life have strengthened my conviction that each and everyone’s existence is deeply tied to that of others: life is not time merely passing by, life is about interactions.
As I meet, or lend an ear to those who are sick, to the migrants who face terrible hardships in search of a brighter future, to prison inmates who carry a hell of pain inside their hearts, and to those, many of them young, who cannot find a job, I often find myself wondering: “Why them and not me?” I, myself, was born in a family of migrants; my father, my grandparents, like many other Italians, left for Argentina and met the fate of those who are left with nothing. I could have very well ended up among today’s “discarded” people. And that’s why I always ask myself, deep in my heart: “Why them and not me?” Continue reading “Why the only future worth building includes everyone”

Pope Francis‘ trip to Egypt was marked Friday, April 28, by a significant step forward in ecumenical relations between the Roman Catholic and Coptic Orthodox Churches.
In a joint declaration signed April 28 by Francis and Coptic Pope Tawadros II of Alexandria during Francis’ visit to the Orthodox St. Mark Cathedral in Cairo, the two churches agreed that they would not hold baptisms for members of one church wishing to join the other.
“We, with one mind and heart, will seek sincerely not to repeat the baptism that has been administered in either of our Churches for any person who wishes to join the other,” the two popes said in the declaration. “This we confess in obedience to the Holy Scriptures.” Continue reading “Pope Francis and Coptic pope agree not to re-baptize”
