Europe's Bishops Face The Music

This report at Vatican Insider about the European bishops' recent statement on the situation the continent faces is important for several reasons. First, they have not abandoned the "European project" at a time when nationalistic parties are all too willing to stoke social and political anxieties by ranting about Brussels. Second, they forcefully advocate for solidarity when all too many economists, and the politicians who listen to them, keep preaching a doctrine of austerity. Third, these bishops place the common good at the center of their exhortation.
