Pope Francis urges youth to accept migrants on visit to Poland

Pope Francis has urged hundreds of thousands of pilgrims in Poland to show compassion for migrants. He told young people gathered in Krakow “a merciful heart opens up to welcome refugees and migrants”, a statement that puts him at odds with Poland’s anti-immigrant right-wing government.

It is Pope Francis’s first visit to eastern Europe, with Poland the home of the late Pope John Paul II. On Friday he is visiting the former Nazi death camp of Auschwitz-Birkenau.(BBC,2016)
