Pope Francis calls on every European parish to host a refugee family

Source: RT
Pope Francis has called on every European parish to host one refugee family each in a goodwill gesture that will begin in the Vatican state. It comes as Europe faces the worst refugee crisis since World War II.

“I appeal to the parishes, the religious communities, the monasteries and sanctuaries of all Europe to take in one family of refugees,” Pope Francis said after his Sunday address.

He added that it is not enough to say “have courage, hang in there” to the refugees making the dangerous journey into Europe.
