Bishops’ conference official stresses importance of EU

Catholic World News - May 22, 2014

The secretary-general of the Commission of the Bishops’ Conferences of the European Community has emphasized the importance of the European Union and the 2014 European Parliament elections, which are taking place from May 22 to 25.

Citing a “number of crucial issues that can only be solved at a European level,” including poverty and youth unemployment, Father Patrick Daly told Vatican Radio that the elections are a “vital moment.”

Father Daly said that many Europeans have “little appreciation” of “how essential the EU is to their well-being and to the overall peace and stability of Europe.”
