The pope denounces the "moral blindness of this indifference”: "under the guise of what is politically correct or ideologically fashionable, one looks at those who suffer without touching them. But they are televised live; they are talked about in euphemisms and with apparent tolerance, but nothing is done systematically to heal the social wounds or to confront the structures that leave so many brothers and sisters by the wayside”.

2016-05-06

Just before receiving the Charlemagne Prize, the Pope met with three representatives of the major European institutions:

Martin Schulz, president of the European Parliament, Donald Tusk, president of the European Council and Jean-Claude Junker, president of the European Commission.

He held a brief meeting with them in the library of the Apostolic Palace and at the end gave them a symbolic gift.

"The angel of peace expels the demon of war.”

Minutes later, German Chancellor Angela Merkel  met with him in the Apostolic Palace. It is the third time the two have met in the Vatican.

As a previous Charlemagne Prize recipient, President Martin Schulz recalled during his speech at the Sala Regia of the Vatican that this award was born thanks to the initiative of the citizens of Aachen, Germany. These people, despite the then-recent World War II, decided to promote unity and recognize the efforts of those who fought for peace.
