THE POPE IN THE GYPSY (SLOVENIA)
The Holy Father has met more than 5,000 people from a gypsy community in Kosice. Many of them who are forced to live in conditions of degradation and poverty. In the neighborhood, the only support is a Salesian center.
“No one in the Church should feel out of place or left out. It is not just a way of saying, it is the way of being of the Church ”.
We are a family, let’s learn to recognize each other as brothers and sisters.
Francis also told them that God sees us as children and has the gaze of a Father. He has focused on the importance of “welcoming” that gaze on us, “so that we learn to see others well, discover that we have other children of God by our side and recognize them as brothers”. He recalled: “This is the Church, a family of brothers and sisters with the same Father, who has given us Jesus as brother, so that we understand how much brotherhood loves. And longs for all humanity to become one universal family. “
