Did the Pope perform an exorcism? In this video, Pope Francis prays over a sick person in St. Peter's Square on the feast of Pentecost. Although some believed he had performed an exorcism, the Vatican spokesman, Fr. Federico Lombardi, said that it was not and that the Holy Father prayed for the man as he usually does when presented with sick people. (catholicnewsagency)
MEXICO CITY - Cardinal Norberto R. Carrera said the family should become the nucleus of a society that spreads concord and not hostility, while speaking at a voluntary disarmament campaign in Mexico City.
“Society always needs public forces to prevent violence, but preventative actions such as voluntary disarmament are more important,” the cardinal Archbishop of Mexico stated.

According to the News Service of the Archdiocese of Mexico, Cardinal Carrera thanked government officials for the invitation “to participate in a cause so noble as peace.”
