Påven tackar Sverige i sitt tal till diplomatkåren

I sitt tal till diplomatkåren i Heliga Stolen idag tackade påve Franciskus Sverige - samt Italien, Tyskland och Grekland - för sitt generösa välkomnande av människor i nöd:

"The issue of migration is not one that can leave some countries indifferent, while others are left with the burden of humanitarian assistance, often at the cost of notable strain and great hardship, in the face of an apparently unending emergency. All should feel responsible for jointly pursuing the international common good, also through concrete gestures of human solidarity; these are essential building-blocks of that peace and development which entire nations and millions of people still await. So I am grateful to the many countries which offer a generous welcome to those in need, beginning with various European nations, particularly Italy, Germany, Greece and Sweden".
