From Poland Pope Francis asks to "overcome fears" in the face of migration

2016-07-27

As expected, Pope Francis' arrival to Poland was dominated by a festive atmosphere. He arrived on time, but with a very vivid memory of the terrorist attacks that shook Europe once again in recent weeks.

During the flight, the Pope said that the cause of this violence must not be sought in religion but in money.

POPE FRANCIS
"It's not a war of religions. No. All religions want peace. Others want war. Is this understood? Do not be afraid to say this truth : the world is at war because peace is lost.”

At the airport, after a simple welcoming ceremony, the Pope headed to Wawel Castle. He met with political, diplomatic and other social representatives of the country.

He spoke of the challenges of the twenty-first century Europe; especially in regards to migration.

POPE FRANCIS
"This latest challenge requires a great amount of wisdom and compassion to overcome fears and do the most good. Availability is needed to accommodate those fleeing war and hunger; solidarity with those who are deprived of their fundamental rights, including the right to freely and safely profess their faith.”

Pope Francis reminded everyone of John Paul II wish to rebuild on a new European humanism. The Polish Pope dreamed of a strong Europe that would once again believe in itself to regain its identity and its strong Christian roots. Without having an identity, he said, it is impossible to have dialogue, respect and integrate.

POPE FRANCIS
"When he talked about a people, was based on his story to highlight their treasures of humanity and spirituality. Dialogue cannot exist unless each party starts out from its own identity.”

After his address, the Pope met with Polish President Andrzej Duda, and then left to meet with the bishops of Poland and the ecclesiastical authorities in the cathedral of Krakow.
