Pope Francis highlights demographic crisis and plight of refugees during Bulgaria visit

Pope Francis

Pope Francis has addressed the issue of low birth rates, high levels of emigration and refugees during a visit to Bulgaria and North Macedonia.

“Bulgaria, like so many other countries of Europe, must deal with what can only be called a new winter: the demographic winter that has descended like an ice curtain on a large part of Europe, the consequence of a diminished confidence in the future,” said the pontiff during a meeting with officials in the Bulgarian capital Sofia.
