Former Vatican prefect: Pope Francis offers ‘great lesson to all of humanity’

April 29, 2016

Pope Francis offered a “great lesson to all of humanity” in visiting refugees on the Greek island of Lesbos, the former prefect of the Congregation for Divine Worship said in an op-ed column.

Writing in La Razón, Cardinal Antonio Cañizares Llovera of Valencia said that the Pope offered “the lesson of charity, the lesson of love, the lesson of faith in Jesus Christ.”

In addition, the presence of the Ecumenical Patriarch of Constantinople and the Greek Orthodox archbishop of Athens “portends a new day: the day of Christian unity,” Cardinal Cañizares Llovera added: “praying together, witnessing together the same charity of Christ that impels us, and on the basis of which we will be judged.”
