(Vatican Radio) The Vatican’s Secretary for Relations with States, Archbishop Paul Richard Gallagher, on Sunday said the sacrifice of four Missionaries of Charity and 12 others  –  who were murdered in Yemen at a home for the elderly on 4 March – was “a very strong witness for all Christians around the world that love has no boundaries, love is a very important obligation for all Christians, but it sometimes comes at a great cost.”

The Archbishop was speaking on TV2000, the television network belonging to the Italian Bishops’ Conference.

He said he was “full of admiration” for those who would not abandon the elderly under their case, “remaining there despite all of the risks.”

Speaking about the migration crisis in Europe, Archbishop Gallagher said it “requires a response of generosity and magnanimity.”

"We hope that the EU countries can work together to find a common solution to this dramatic situation,” he said, adding the “problem is not going away.”
