Pope Francis to Muslim Migrants: ‘You Are Warriors of Hope’


Pope Francis sent a clear message to Muslim migrants — and to government leaders around the globe who may want to slow the tide on admitting these people — and called them “warriors of hope” in a world of darkness.


Because some, at least, are actually criminals.

Breitbart has more (h/t Jihad Watch):

Pope Francis flew to Bologna, Italy, Sunday and met with a large group of migrants and refugees, calling them “warriors of hope” while insisting that nations open broader avenues for immigration.

During a full day in Bologna, Francis spent an hour meeting hundreds of migrants personally while posing with them for selfies under light drizzle. Later, the pontiff hosted a luncheon for asylum-seekers and prisoners in the St. Petronius basilica. He even donned a yellow plastic ID bracelet used by asylum-seekers to express his solidarity with them.

“Do you know what you are? You are ‘warriors of hope’!” Francis exclaimed during his address to the many migrants present, urging them not to give in to disappointment or despair.

In his address, the Pope also offered his explanation of why he believes some people in Europe oppose mass migration, building on earlier statements in which he suggested that xenophobia was fueling people’s concerns.

“Many do not know you and they are afraid,” he said. “This makes them feel entitled to judge harshly and coldly while thinking they see well. But this is not true. We see well only with the proximity that comes from mercy. Without this, the other remains a stranger, even an enemy, and cannot become my neighbor.”

The Pope suggested that immigration is an issue that can only be understood by meeting the people involved, rather than considering its causes and effects from afar.

“From a distance, we can say and think anything, as easily happens when terrible phrases and insults are written across the internet,” he said. “If we look upon our neighbor without mercy, we are unaware of his suffering, his problems.”

“Today all I see is a great desire for friendship and help,” the Pope continued. “I would like to thank the institutions and all the volunteers for the attention and commitment in taking care of those who are here.”

As he has done on other occasions, Francis recalled the words of the Gospel where Jesus Christ identified with the “least” among us.

“In you I see Jesus Christ, as with any stranger who knocks at our door, who identifies himself with the foreigner, of every age and condition, accepted or rejected,” he said.

Regarding concrete applications of his words, the Pope said it is “necessary for more countries to adopt private and community-based welcoming programs and to open humanitarian avenues for refugees in the most difficult situations, to avoid unbearable waiting periods and lost time.”

Last week, Pope Francis launched a two-year campaign to educate people about the plight of migrants and to provoke a “shift in thinking” toward them worldwide.

“Brothers, we mustn’t be afraid to share the journey! We mustn’t be afraid to share the hope!” Francis said in his weekly General Audience in Saint Peter’s Square, in which he inaugurated the new project, titled “Share the Journey.”

The campaign is being spearheaded by the global Catholic charities network Caritas Internationalis and aims at promoting awareness and action on behalf of migrants and refugees, assisting them in building connections with local communities.

In an address in the Vatican Saturday, Pope Francis seemed to ascribe people’s concerns with Europe’s migrant crisis to xenophobia, suggesting that a “culture of encounter” could remedy opposition to migration.”

  • Suresh

    He is like a demented shepherd who brings in wolves among his flock and calls them “warriors of hope” !

    And the Islamonazi Pope wants christians to bring in more of his islamonazi friends. while the hypocrite hides behind personal security and 40 feet high walls !

    And now he even questions christians on their faith

    • Ebayer

      This Pope is dangerously insane! This leftist lapdog still does not see Islam as the threat it actually is.

      • Rachele Raanan

        Someone should give the Pope an annotated edition of the Koran, in Spanish, and make sure he reads it.

      • Fred8512

        Bayer, I think he wants to be French.

  • Politically Accurate

    What the Marxist Pope meant to say was Islamonazi invaders are Warriors of Hell.

  • Mrs. Chief

    I’m Catholic & he must be removed. He’s nuts!

    • mezcukor

      I am a catholic too and I agree with you.

    • He has failed to remember the tremendous damage that Islam did to not only his Church, but to so many other human civilizations.

  • Joe Blow

    The Romaine Cattlelick Church is a gigantic cesspool and no friend of the free world or Jews, more so thanks to this turdmonger of a pope

    • Ziggy46

      Amen, Joe blow; this man, Francis, the so-called Vicar of Christ, is Lucifer’s incarnate.

      • ladywarrior

        True. The Bible warns us that Satan knows the Bible as well or better than most of us. He tried to use it on Jesus when was fasting in the desert for forty days.

        I have no problem believing that Satan inhabits the Soul of the dhimmi for Islam ….the Pope.

        • Ziggy46

          I, like you, ladywarrior, and perhaps numerous others perceive this pope as the incarnate of Lucifer. I am not a Roman Catholic; however, this cannot deter me or others for discerning Francis as a threat to Christendom and Western Civilization. Not merely Christendom, but Buddhism, Judaism and other faiths diverse of Islam.
          Folks whom deem themselves too sophisticated to believe in the Bible, may find themselves to discover they are not sophisticates after all.

          • ladywarrior

            Very true. It’s not just Christians who are being wiped out…it’s all religions and belief systems that are not Islam. Good point.

          • Ziggy46

            I appreciate your posts; you are solid in your beliefs and do not back down.

  • Voytek Gagalka

    They call themselves “soldiers of allah.” Of course, they consider themselves as “warriors of hope”! Islamic “hope.” The pope is their dupe, useful idiot. Perhaps even a convert.

    • Rachele Raanan

      His failure to call attention to his fellow Christians in Muslim lands whose churches are being bombed, who are being murdered for refusing to convert and visited by other atrocities has made me often think he must be a secret convert to Islam.

    • ladywarrior

      They are called dhimmis for Islam. The bad news for the Pope is that when the Muslims invade and conquer a people….the first persons they kill are the dhimmis….they rightly reason that if they would betray their own people to help them conquer them…..then there is a good chance they will do the same to them someday when they take over.

      If and when the Muslims storm the Vatican…..they will behead this dhimmi who helped them and it will be a symbol to all of Islam that the head of the worldwide Catholic Church was beheaded in the name of Allah and Mohammed. It will invigorate their entire plan to kill all non-Muslims…..on that day…..there will be a worldwide War…..

  • s;vbkr0boc,klos;

    Year in and year out, decade in and decade out there are Catholic religious working anonymously with the sick, the ‘marginal’, praying daily for mankind. But THESE human jackals are the ones who get the Pope’s ‘call out’.

  • pipo

    Only this fool of a Pope is better protected than the American presidenth that is why he is still talking. Get rid of him very soon, even if it is a suicide mission.

  • Halal Bacon

    why can they not make hope in their native lands?

  • Mahou Shoujo

    The pope no longer has any credibility, there is no reason to pay attention to his insane ramblings, his understanding of humanity does not exist, he is a brain washed socialist.

    • Paul Pleau

      You are right. A comprehensive search of his past shows that he has always been antisemitic and a fascist, and has always had very radical views and opinions. He is basically just a globalist mouthpiece and total ass wipe. Catholics should be ashamed to call themselves catholic, as long as they support this islamist scumbag.

      • John Otradovec

        How did this Pope get his standing. I thought you had to come up though the ranks while kissing a lot of ass.It seems he went from Night club bouncer to pope.He came to the USA and stated he was ant-Capalist. It seems the Pope and our Obummer where both installed by the shadow Govt.of Communist or Globalists.

  • Steve Sisel

    As a catholic, I emphatically condemn all that Francis stands for. It is antithetical to our beliefs and is living proof why the Europeans especially are turning away from the faith. Our only hope is the Catholics in China who defy not only their atheistic regime, but also their own pope, Francis, who would sell them out in a heart beat.

  • hal8196

    How dare he insult Ahmed and his fellow moslem warriors by calling them Jesus. They do not believe in Jesus, and you Francis, are an infidel and a non-believer. AND AN IDIOT !!!

  • Fred8512

    I have called this Pope “Pope-a-Dope”, but, as of today, I am convinced he is senile, and needs to be removed.

  • jim

    Why doesn’t Pope Francis set the example by opening the doors to Rome and the Vatican to these Muslim refugees? He’s a hypocrite! He doesn’t practice what he preaches.
    He’s always bending over backwards to appease Muslims and Islam!

    These so-called refugees are just economic migrants. Some of them are criminals and terrorists.
    The real refugees from the Arab nations are the Christians and the Jews.

  • Marino Danielis

    Bergoglio has to think more about Christians and not only to Muslims: it currently acts more by imam than by Pope

  • jim

    Xenophobia means an irrational fear to foreigners. Xeno = foreigners, phobia = irrational fear.
    The citizens of the EU have good rational reasons to fear the huge influx of Muslims from some of the most violent places on earth. These migrants don’t have any useful skills to benefit the EU and refuse to integrate into the EU. Instead, they demand that the EU accomodate them.

  • Laura

    Why are there so many monster raving loony lefties in positions of influence?

    • ladywarrior

      Because most of the world-including America- was asleep at the switch….and the resulting train wreck will be on our heads for ALLOWING it….bit by bit, drip by drip. We are beginning to see the culmination of all that has been going on in our country from Carter to Obama….and yes, that includes the Bushs who have decades of long standing relationships -business and personal – with the Middle-Eastern countries. GW Bushs’ college roommate was a Saudi Prince…..

      Wasn’t it GHW Bush who first interjected “NWO” in one of his speeches? Yes.

      Lock and Load….the day is coming in the the not so distant future.

  • CreoleGumbo

    This is Pope Damien – as in Damien in “The Omen.”

  • Larenzo1

    Why did they ever make this man Pope to fill some unknown Hispanic affirmative action goal that sprang up at The College of Cardinals. This was a terrible mistake.

    • ladywarrior

      It was never a “mistake”. The Globalists worked very hard to get rid of Benedict and to place this Globalist dhimmi in the Vatican.

      • Joe Blow

        Globalists is the new all encompassing X-Files conspiracy.

        • ladywarrior

          It’s not a “conspiracy”….it’s a fact. If there is any “conspiracy”…it’s on the part of your kind that are steadily planning the destruction of America and her people….exactly like you’re doing with your post to marginalize what the rest of the freedom loving people know is happening…’re not going to “Gaslight” me and millions of other people.

          • Dorrie

            I agree! What has been happening is that the globalists all want open borders. And hasn’t it worked great for the EU! They want the same for Mexico, United States & Canada – and even started printing out money for it! It’s a tremendously big thing, with a LOT of people involved in it!

          • Joe Blow

            You do realizes, you geniuses, the original “globalists” is the Vatican. They have been aiding and abetting the hispanic illegals in the USA for decades.

          • Dorrie

            And what do YOU geniuses propose this government do about it? huh? If you don’t want to run for a government office, you HAVE no say about it, so shut you pie hole!

          • Joe Blow

            I didn’t realize that Vatican was a democracy and I could run for office there.
            Sorry but spare me your senseless hypocritical blather. You defend the RCC in spite of the fact that have been promoting illegal immigrants for decades, as well as other leftist causes.

            More like the Romaine Cattlelick Church was always contemptible and hypocritical and always been run by degenerate fruits like this Jesushit.

          • IzlamIsTyranny

            Hmmm, if Catholics hadn’t slaughtered hundreds of thousands of muslum vermin and expelled them from Europe the Renaissance NEVER would’ve happened.

          • Joe Blow

            I didn’t say they were always Islamophiliac cucks. But in the last 60 odd years they have become more Marxist, leftist and anti-west.

          • IzlamIsTyranny

            It would’ve been nice if they had stood up to the f’ing nazis too.
            I still think the RCC could be a force for good in the world, if they had decent leadership.

          • Joe Blow

            I agree 100% , they could do a LOT OF GOOD. But I know this one LW Jesuit priest whom the Vatican would send to GAZA to help protest against “ZIONISM”. When I pointed out that the few Catholics in Gaza live under constant fear and oppression vs the many Catholics in Israel who at most have to deal with a deranged Ultra haranguing them verbally, or Arab countries, like Hamas Gaza, that simply ban all Jews, he farted out some pseudo-intellectual leftist rubbish about how “Zionist” pressure created all that prejudice
            And this happened when the pope was still JOHN PAUL. The RCC has always been a weakling when standing up to Moslems since the end of WW 2. Part of that is defensive, because their Christians in the ME are so vulnerable to the Sand Nazis.

          • IzlamIsTyranny

            I wonder what the founder of Christianity would think of a “Christian” siding w/the f’ing muslums over Israel?

          • Joe Blow

            Obviously they really don’t care about Catholics but are quite willing to aid the enemies of Catholics, Jews and the west They use our best values to disarm their people and enable these Moslem barbarians. They must be suicidal or plain destructive.

    Wake up America !!!!!!! They hope to enslave you!
    “Farewell to England”
    This is a list of Islamic accomplishments in that country that I thought might give you a better understanding of the insidiousness of Hijrah; that’s the takeover of a nation without going to war. Don’t think for a moment that America is not a target or that there are no American cities where Islamic and Sharia victories and takeovers have already occurred. It’s time for border control, or start planning for a very big goodbye America party
    Here’s what has already happened to England within a few years of opening their borders without entry control:
    How the British have passively succumbed to the Muslim invasion:
    Mayor of London .. MUSLIM
    Mayor of Birmingham .. MUSLIM
    Mayor of Leeds … MUSLIM
    Mayor of Blackburn … MUSLIM
    Mayor of Sheffield … MUSLim
    Mayor of Oxford .. MUSLIM
    Mayor of Luton …. MUSLIM
    Mayor of Oldham … MUSLIM
    Mayor of Rochdale … MUSLIM
    All the following achieved by just 4 million Muslims out of the 66 million population:
    Over 3,000 Muslim Mosque
    Over 130 Muslim Sharia Courts
    Over 50 Muslim Sharia Councils
    Muslims Only No-Go Areas Across The UK
    Muslim Women.. 78% don’t work and are on FREE benefits/housing
    Muslim Men… 63% don’t work and are on FREE benefits/housing
    Muslim Families… 6-8 children planning to go on FREE benefits/housing and now all UK schools are ONLY serving HALAL MEAT!

    They’re warriors of hope alright hope to take over the world through bloodshed and butchery. I think the pope has something in common with our catholic hypocrite Pelosi. They are both delusional space cadets that live in a universe all their own. They are completely clueless about the real world.

    • ladywarrior

      Islam is a collective brutal mental illness…..and it’s never going away with “reasoning” and prayers. At this point-at the rate it’s spreading- I fear the only solution will end up being the total destruction of Islam and it’s followers.

    • ladywarrior

      The Bible says that prior to the Anti-Christ showing up there will be someone like this Pope paving the way……I do believe this Pope is the advance man for Satan….all his words and actions prove it.

    • Dorrie

      I completely agree. And I think that Anti-Christ will be a Muslim.

  • ladywarrior

    This Pope is a Marxist tool of the Globalists…..and he’s insane. Islam is the antithesis to Christianity. They have vowed to kill all Christians/Jews and those who do not follow Islam. What in God’s name is going on at the Vatican?!!!

    The day will come when the Muslim murdering hordes storm the Vatican…..and I will be okay if we don’t send even one brave warrior from our country to help this maniac Pope. He is an embarrassment to the Catholic community.

    As a Catholic myself this “pope” NEEDS TO GO! He does not follow Church doctrine and he has NO idea what the Catholic Church is all about! Pope Francis is a huge moron that I hope that God Almighty takes him off this world, quickly! Pope Francis is a bastard to his own church!

  • Alfred Carillo

    As usual, the Pope is happy to tell everyone else to do what he will not. Let him open the Vatican grounds as well as the millions of dollars worth of real estate his church owns in the US for them and pay for their lifetime care from his multi-million dollar purse. THEN he just might gain some high ground. Until then he is just another Left Wing Hypocrite telling us to do what he will not!

  • Steve

    Forgive me Jesus but Francis is an a88hole and is empowering the enemy to your church.

    Some one in Vatican City needs to tell Pope Frank to butt out of politics

  • No, Francis, they are not. And sadly, with all due respect, I am not so sure that you are either.
