Migrant crisis: Journey through Austria to Germany resumes

Hundreds of migrants have resumed their journey through Austria to Germany after Hungary’s decision on Friday to let them through.

Several trains arrived at Munich station in the early hours of Sunday morning, many migrants travelling on to other German cities for processing.

Trains are taking hundreds more to Vienna from Austria’s border with Hungary.

The Pope said every Catholic parish in Europe should host a migrant family.

Pope Francis. The Muslim Times is with the Pope when he is right; as Michael Servetus our favorite Christian martyr once said: 'Neither with those nor with the others, with all I agree and dissent; in all part of truth and part of error must be seen.'

Pope Francis said humanity must give help to those “fleeing death” and who are “victims of war and hunger and setting out on the path to a better life”.

Speaking during the Angelus prayer, he appealed for “every parish, every religious community, every monastery, every sanctuary in Europe” to take in a family.
