Whingers should all follow Pope's example

Published 22/04/2016

Fergus Jordan's letter (Write Back, April 20) criticising Pope Francis for taking only 12 refugees to live in the Vatican demonstrates what a country of whingers we have become.

By his actions the Pope has once again demonstrated great love of humanity and has taught all of us what we should be doing to bear witness to Christ.

His actions were all the more powerful by the fact that the 12 are all Muslims.

It will be interesting to see if his request for each parish in Europe to take in a refugee family ever comes to fruition.
