The European project of Pope Francis

"I dream of a Europe that is young, still capable of being a mother: a mother who has life because she respects life and offers hope for life. 

I dream of a Europe that cares for children, that offers fraternal help to the poor and those newcomers seeking acceptance because they have lost everything and need shelter. 

I dream of a Europe that is attentive to and concerned for the infirm and the elderly, lest they be simply set aside as useless. 

I dream of a Europe where being a migrant is not a crime but a summons to greater commitment on behalf of the dignity of every human being.

I dream of a Europe where young people breathe the pure air of honesty, where they love the beauty of a culture and a simple life undefiled by the insatiable needs of consumerism, where getting married and having children is a responsibility and a great joy, not a problem due to the lack of stable employment. 

I dream of a Europe of families, with truly effective policies concentrated on faces rather than numbers, on birth rates more than rates of consumption. 

I dream of a Europe that promotes and protects the rights of everyone, without neglecting its duties towards all. 

I dream of a Europe of which it will not be said that its commitment to human rights was its last utopia.”
