The Pope’s visit to Mytilene, Greece gave hope to thousands asylum seekers fleeing the civil war in Syria and being promised to be forcefully taken back to Turkey. People crying, asking for the Pope’s prayers and blessings was even more emotional to watch. To the thousands desperate migrants’ surprise, Pope Francis announced moments before leaving that he will take 12 Syrians on his private jet back to Rome. In fact, all three families were Muslim but faith, as argued by the Pope, is not what matters in this case but the vulnerability of the person of concern. Francis insisted that they will have assistance in finding jobs and settle down legally.

“May all of our brothers and sisters on this continent, like the good Samaritan, come to your aid in the spirit of fraternity, solidarity and respect for human dignity,” The Pope told hundreds of asylum seekers living in the Island’s detention center.
