The Pope will travel to the Greek island of Lesbos to visit refugees fleeing war

2016-04-05


In addition to expressing concern for the refugee situation currently taking place on European soil, the Pope will also show his proximity in a tangibly way. 

On April 15, he will travel to the Greek island of Lesbos, where most European migrants and refugees have arrived by nearly risking their lives in the Mediterranean sea. They come mostly from Syria and Iraq but there are also many people coming from Afghanistan and Pakistan.

He will, once again, visit one of the critical points of this drama, as he did in 2013, when he traveled to Lampedusa, the Italian island where thousands of people, mostly from sub-Saharan origin also arrive.

The Pope will be accompanied by the Archbishop of Athens, Ieronimus II, the ecumenical patriarch of Constantinople Bartholomew, Greek President, Prokopis Paulopoulos and Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras. 

The visit to Lesbos will be one of the gestures of mercy, something the Pope is doing every month during this Jubilee. Especially, in places where there is immense suffering.
