Media CenterFrom EWTN: Could Pope Francis' Visit to Greece Be a Game-Changer for Refugees?
Pope Francis is making plans to visit Greece this Saturday. The trip itself shows a moment of great leadership when the refugee crisis continues to displace millions of lives across Europe. Catholic Relief Services' emergency coordinator for the refugee and migrant response, Josh Kyller, was interviewed by EWTN to discuss what the impact of what the Pope's visit could mean for the Catholic Church's response to the European refugee crisis.
“The Pope’s trip to the frontlines of the European refugee crisis comes at a critical time. The continent of Europe is currently experiencing a vacuum of leadership with the politics of the crisis oftentimes overshadowing the plight of those on the move. Instead, he draws our attention to the tens of thousands of those who are suffering."
