Pope Francis in Turkey. The ecumenism of martyrdom
by NAT da Polis
The Pope's trip to Turkey is primarily of ecumenical importance, but also to give witness. Christian unity, founded on faith and common witness of the martyrs, urges greater commitment to a world which in theory is united by finance, but in reality is divided and disintegrated from the social point of view. A possible appeal for joint commemoration of Nicea and joint condemnation of the massacre of Christians. Which is also taking place on Turkish borders.

Pope calls Church to mission, witness, charity and listening in cities

11/27/2014 VATICAN
Pope urges religious to continue their "spiritual, charismatic and institutional" renewal
Examine "everything in the light of the Word of God and listen to the needs of the Church and the contemporary world, using all means that the wisdom of the Church offers to advance on the path of your personal and community holiness". The "not insignificant" number of people who “abandon” religious life says something about selection and formation of candidates". "Prayer is not a waste of time, worship of God is not wasting time, praise of God not to waste time. "

11/27/2014 VATICAN
Pope: Amid corruption and "distraction" from the Lord, Christians must keep hope alive
"This word 'corruption' says a lot to us today: not only economic corruption, but corruption with many different sins; the corruption of that pagan spirit, that worldly spirit. The worst [form of ] corruption is the spirit of worldliness!" " When we think of the end of time, with all of our sins, with our history, let us think of the banquet which will be freely offered us and let us lift up our heads. Do not give way to depression: Hope!"
11/26/2014 VATICAN
Pope: Heaven is, "more than a place" it is a "state" in which our deepest expectations will be fulfilled

11/25/2014 VATICAN
Pope: dialogue with ISIS is "difficult, if not almost impossible, but the door is always open"
Speaking to reporters on the plane that took him back to Rome, Francis said, "There is the threat of these terrorists . . . but there is also another threat, state terrorism [. . .] with terrorists many who are innocent also fall [. . .] slavery is a part of today's social fabric. Slave labour, human trafficking, child trafficking. [. . .] It is a tragedy. Let us not close our eyes on this! [. . .] Going out to find people and talk is what Europe needs today."
11/25/2014 VATICAN - EUROPE
Pope: overcoming the "culture of conflict" for the good of peace
Speaking to the Council of Europe Francis recalls that it has a mission to promote peace, freedom and human dignity. Peace is "wounded" in Europe, "where tensions do not cease." It is violated by terrorism " bankrolled by a frequently unchecked traffic in weapons " and also "the traffic of human beings, which is the new slavery of our time." History today demands the ability to break out of the structures which “contain” our identity and to encounter others, for the sake of making that identity more solid and fruitful in the fraternal exchange of transversality.
11/25/2014 VATICAN - EUROPE
Pope: "building together" a Europe based on man, not the economy
Francis brings a "message of hope and encouragement" to the European Parliament. Overcoming an exaggerated individualism that forgets the duties of the common good. Be the bearer of human rights, democracy, welcome for migrants, respect for nature and a promoter of peace.

Pope: A poor and humble Church is faithful, "shines" the light of Jesus, not its own
When the Church "is faithful to hope and to her Bridegroom, she is joyful to receive the light from Him, to be in this sense 'his widow'," while waiting for His return. All services that we do in the Church are to help us receive this light. "A service without this light is no good: it makes the Church rich, or powerful, or makes the Church seek power, or take the wrong road, as has happened many times in history".
11/23/2014 VATICAN - INDIA
Pope on six new saints, two from India: They served the kingdom of God, of which they became heirs
During the canonisation of new saints in St Peter's Square, Pope Francis stressed that "The starting point of salvation is not the confession of the sovereignty of Christ, but rather the imitation of Jesus' works of mercy through which he brought about his kingdom." We can enter the kingdom of God "by being close in concrete ways to our brothers and sisters who ask for bread, clothing, acceptance, solidarity," and catechesis. At least 20,000 Indians came for the two Indian saints, Euphrasia Eluvathingal of the Sacred Heart, and Kuriakose Elias Chavara, from the Syro-Malabar Church.
11/22/2014 VATICAN
Pope: "A missionary Church can only 'go out', without fear of meeting others, to discover new things"
Christians must proclaim the Gospel "to everyone without distinction, not proselytising, to tell others about what we have and what we want to share without forcing anyone”. “Going out means overcoming the temptation of talking among ourselves and forgetting the many who wait for a word of mercy from us, a word of comfort, of hope." “The mission is accomplished by all Christians, not just the few. It is a task for children as well”.
11/22/2014 VATICAN
Pope: mission to evangelise is the real reason to renew one's life
Francis makes a number of suggestions to the participants of the Third World Congress of Ecclesial Movements and New Communities, like preserving "the freshness of charisma," respecting people's freedom in their education and always seeking Communion, whilst remembering that to achieve this goal "conversion must be missionary".
