  • [01] President Pavlopoulos officially invites Pope Francis to Lesvos

    Greek President Prokopis Pavlopoulos officially invited Pope Francis to visit the Greek island of Lesvos in a letter delivered by the country's ambassador to the Vatican, the presidency said in a press release on Tuesday evening.

    In his letter, Pavlopoulos describes the difficult circumstances of the refugees stranded in Greece and noted the need to raise awareness on the issue in other European countries, saying that his visit would turn attention to their plea.

    "I am convinced that Your presence on the side of refugees, will not only console them, but will also turn everyone's attention to their dramatic situation, touching the hearts of people around the world," the President said in his invitation.

    "With this thought, I wish to invite You to visit one of the first entry points of refugees at the island of Lesvos, and be next to our fellow human beings who are suffering, along with the Ecumenical Patriarch and the Archbishop of Athens and All Greece," he added.

    "Your visit in Lesvos will strengthen significantly the efforts to raise awareness for the refugee drama and highlight the humanist principles of our common European civilization," the letter concludes.
