The Vatican will cater for the refugee’s welfare in Rome, while the Catholic Sant’Egidio community will take care of having them all well settled in Rome.

The Vatican revealed in their statements to the Holy Father’s actions saying that the Holy Father, Pope Francis wanted to “make a gesture of welcome" to the refugees, who were in camps on the Greek island before the agreement between the EU and Turkey to return migrants came into effect on March 20.

    How ‘progressive’ of him, ill add this mind boggling act to the statements in which he bashed Trump, and slandered firearm owners.

      To Barry John and all those who do not agree,

      Yes, it made a difference to the lives of twelve Muslim immigrants who most likely had little hope left in them. The Pope ‘bashed’ a man too weak and unwilling to accept others who did not have his skin colour. I understand and accept that there are many, many moments in life where a weapon is needed but I do not believe our Pope was ‘slandering’ those who carry a weapon for the defensive reasons (e.g young woman or man carrying a sting gun for protection while in an untrustworthy part of a city).

      Your sarcasm was unnecessary and childish. You did not have to make such a disrespectful remark when you are fully aware there would be others who would take that as offensive.

      A life is a life regardless of religion. The Gosple and the disciples do not restrict us from helping our cousins who follow a different path to God.
      To the children and future descendants of the twelve Muslims, this was very much a ‘progressive’ and life changing moment. Every person we meet will affect our lives.

    I admire this Pope for his courage to do the unexpected
