Pope Francis urged Hungarians on Sunday, during a service held in Budapest, not to close the door to migrants and those who are “foreign or different from us”, reports Reuters.
Pope Francis in Hungary: Do not close the door to foreigners and migrants
More than 50,000 people gathered on Sunday in the square near the Parliament building in Budapest to see the Pope on the last day of his visit to Hungary.
He continued a theme he began on Friday, the first day of the visit, when he warned against the dangers of rising nationalism in Europe, but in an evangelical context, saying that closed doors are painful and contrary to the teachings of Jesus.
On Sunday, Pope Francis said that if Hungarians want to follow Jesus, they must avoid “the closed doors of our individualism in the midst of an increasingly isolated society; the closed doors of our indifference to the disadvantaged and the suffering; the doors we close to those who are foreigners or who are not like us, to migrants or the poor”.
The Sovereign Pontiff believes that migrants fleeing poverty should be welcomed and integrated, as they can culturally enrich host countries and boost Europe’s shrinking population.
