IMAGE: CNS/Paul HaringBy Cindy WoodenABOARD THE PAPAL FLIGHT FROM GREECE (CNS) -- When an aidesuggested Pope Francis offer to fly some Syrian refugees back to Rome with him,he said he said yes immediately because it was "an inspiration of the HolySpirit."In the end, he said, 12 Syrians -- members of threefamilies, including six children -- had all the necessary papers from the Greekand Italian governments in time to fly with the pope April 16.The fact that the 12 are all Muslims did not enter into the equation,the pope said. "I gave priority to children of God."Two Christian families originally had been on the Vatican'slist, too, he said, but their papers were not ready in time.Spending about half an hour answering reporters' questions,Pope Francis insisted his visit to Greece with Orthodox leaders was not aboutcriticizing a recent agreement between the European Union and Turkey to returnto Turkey those entering EU territory without legal permission."What I saw today and what you s...
Aboard the papal plane, Apr 16, 2016 / 01:25 pm (CNA/EWTN News).- Pope Francis has said that the family is in crisis, and that is a much bigger issue than communion for the divorced and remarried. He suggested the news media had focused too much on the latter issue during the synod and in coverage of his recent document on the family.The Pope spoke with journalists on his plane flight back from visiting refugees on the Greek island of Lesbos April 16.A reporter from the French newspaper Le Figaro asked why his post-synod document “Amoris Laetitia” treats access to the sacraments for the divorced and remarried in a footnote.In response, Pope Francis noted a recent Pope’s reflections on the Second Vatican Council. There was the council as it took place in St. Peter’s Basilica, and there was the “council of the media” that covered the event, Pope Benedict XVI had said in February 2013.“When I convoked the first synod, the great concern of the m...

Norwegian Refugee Council and SolidarityNow have called on the European Union to halt the deportations of refugees and migrants from Greece to Turkey. They also say those wanting to seek asylum should not be kept in detention.Refugees could be returned to Turkey without having had a proper asylum hearing or without receiving the necessary information about their legal rights, the aid agencies warn. Forced returns to Turkey were restarted after a pause last week.Over 6,300 refugees and migrants have arrived on the Greek islands since the EU-Turkey deal came into effect on 20 March, and are being arbitrarily held in detention camps. The majority of these new arrivals have applied for asylum. While the European Commission said on 4 April that Greece had sent 1,500 asylum case officers and police officers to the islands, there is no evidence of this additional capacity on the ground. The Greek Asylum Service remains severely understaffed with only a handful of officials and casew...
(Vatican Radio) Pope Francis gave a 30 minute press conference on the flight back from Lesbos to Rome on Saturday, sharing thoughts on a wide range of subjects including his opinion regarding the deal between the EU and Turkey, his meeting with Bernie Sanders, the closure of European borders and his recent apostolic exhortation.The Pope began his traditional ‘conversation’ with journalists aboard the papal plane reflecting on the fact that the visit to Lesbos had had a very strong emotional impact on him.Asked what he thinks about the recent deal between Brussels and Ankara, the Pope highlighted the fact that his visit to Lesbos was undertaken in a purely humanitarian spirit.Regarding the fact that he has brought three refugee families back to Rome with him, he said the decision was the fruit of a ‘last-minute’ inspiration one of his collaborators had a week ago. “Everything was arranged according to the rules. They have their documents. The Holy...
