The call for peace in Ukraine will be one of the central topics of the speeches Pope Francis will deliver during his visit to Hungary next weekend, Csaba Török, governor of the Esztergom parish and press officer of the Hungarian Catholic Bishops’ Conference, told reporters in Rome on Tuesday.
The pontiff’s speeches and homilies will likely contain a “strong message” in connection with the war, Török said. He noted that Pope Francis had been working to mediate between the warring sides since the start of the conflict. Török said Pope Francis’s visit to Hungary will have a “political message”, adding, at the same time, that the moment of rapprochement between the pope and the Patriarch of Moscow would not happen in Budapest. He did not rule out, however, that representatives of the churches of Kyiv and Moscow would be present during Francis’s visit.
He noted that on the occasion of the closing mass of the 52nd International Eucharistic Congress in Budapest in 2021, Prime Minister Viktor Orban presented Francis as a gift a copy of the letter Hungarian King Bela IV wrote to Pope Innocent IV in the 13th century. The prime minister’s gesture was an intention to establish a relationship with the pope to protect Christianity, he added. The Hungarian government also considers itself an ally of the Vatican when it comes to urging peace in Ukraine, Török said. Pope Francis will pay a visit to Hungary between April 28 and 30.
His Holiness Pope Francis – his message to rightfully SHAME & Disgrace – the Orban led Government – should read the MESSAGE of Saint Pope John Paul 11 – delivered in his Pontifical Mass in Hero’s Square in August 1991, his second visit to Hungary to all HUNGARIANS.
Victor Orban – was in the VIP area on this day in August 1991.
REMEMBER – August 1989 – the Orban speech from Hero’s Square – singing PONTICATING – the only way forward for Hungary – is DEMOCRACY.
MESSAGE of Saint Pope John Paul 11 to all Hungarians;
“Be mindful of the Blessings that Freedom which you have Definitively secured means for your Future.
Cherish it and make good use of your liberty.”
YOU want to mix Politics & Church – these Words of Wisdom should be READ again – by his Holiness Pope Francis as a MASSIVE reminder a wake up call, that FACTUALLY, this is not HAPPENING in Hungary.
Cardinal Peter Peter Erdo – you take to the Pulpit and read these words – if His Holiness “goes off” in another direction subject.
Cardinal Erdo – these are the WORDS of your Hero Pope Saint Pope John Paul 11 and be SEEN and Witnessed as an INSTRUEMENT – the use of his WORDS – his message to Hungary.
Lead us – Cardinal Peter Erdo – take a POSITION, for what is HAPPENING to the “Children of God” in Hungary, all Hungarians, that is just of MASSIVE hypocrisy to the words the MESSAGE of Saint Pope John Paul 11 – in August 1991.
“Be not Afraid” – Church & Politics – time to AWAKEN Hungary – for we have LOST all that is contained in the MESSAGE gifted us August 1991 by Saint Pope John Paul 11.
oh yeah, let’s propose to upgrade king Viktor the be the new pope!
…And someone will milk his Holiness’ visit for all it’s worth.
