Pope Francis: Greek economic situation “worrying”

2015-07-01

The Greek government missed the deadline for a 1.5 billion Euro payment to the International Monetary Fund today. The move has deepened the already serious economic crisis in the country and made it more likely that Greece will leave the Eurozone.

Pope Francis has weighed in, saying in a statement that the he is worried about the situation and is particularly thinking about "the many families gravely beset by such a complex and keenly felt human and social crisis.”

The statement goes on to say that "the dignity of the human person must remain at the center of any political and technical debate, as well as in the taking of responsible decisions.” The Pope called on all faithful to pray for the Greek people.

The country will no longer be able to receive IMF financing until the owed money has been repaid. It has less than three weeks to pay it, or the country could leave the Eurozone.
