Pope's quotes: What happened?

 |  The Francis Chronicles

A quote from Pope Francis:

"What has happened to you, the Europe of humanism, the champion of human rights, democracy and freedom? What has happened to you, Europe, the home of poets, philosophers, artists, musicians, and men and women of letters? What has happened to you, Europe, the mother of peoples and nations, the mother of great men and women who upheld, and even sacrificed their lives for, the dignity of their brothers and sisters?”

-- Address upon receiving the Charlemagne Prize, May 6, 2016
