Pope Francis Meets With MUSLIM Refugees Brought In By Burke, Festing & The Knights of Malta

ROME - Pope Francis met with 35 refugees being hosted by parishes and religious communities in the Diocese of Rome on Monday evening. The meeting took place in St. John Lateran Basilica, before the pope addressed the annual diocesan assembly of Rome. In his brief remarks, the pontiff alluded to the prejudice the refugees, many of whom are Muslim, are facing. “Love and fraternity go beyond religion. The violent do not possess religion, and religion does not bring violence,” the pope told the group. Italy has been a popular destination for those fleeing violence and poverty in Syria, Iraq, Libya, and other parts of Africa and the Middle East. Over 180,000 migrants and refugees arrived in Italy in 2016 alone. Source
