Description

Pope Francis on Friday lamented a Europe he said had grown "weary" and "entrenched", and urged the continent not to see migrants as criminals. Francis made his pointed comments in the presence of top EU leaders, including German Chancellor Angela Merkel, European Central Bank chief Mario Draghi, and the presidents of the European Parliament, Commission and Council. The Pope scolded, "What has happened to you, the Europe of humanism, the champion of human rights, democracy and freedom? Francis called Europe "weary, yet still rich in energies and possibilities." However, he also criticized the EU member states. He called them them "increasingly entrenched, rather than open to initiating new social processes capable of engaging all individuals and groups in the search for new and productive solutions to current problems." http://feeds.reuters.com/~r/reuters/topNews/~3/0j4uXMji4lI/us-europe-pope-idUSKCN0XX107 http://www.wochit.com This video was produced by YT Wochit News using http://wochit.com
