German State Minister Roth discusses Church’s charitable work with Archbishop Ieronymos
The multilevel social and charitable work of the Greek Church and specifically the Archbishopric was discussed in a meeting between German State Minister for Europe Michael Roth and Ieronymos, Archbishop of Athens and All Greece, in Athens on Monday.
Roth said the Church’s work “helps maintain social cohesion in the country” and thanked the Archbishop for his contribution in managing the refugee crisis with humanity and solidarity.
On his side, the Archbishop noted Europe must return to its roots and adopt values such as solidarity and justice and avoid turning into a Europe of economic interests. He also asked the German minister and his government for assistance in tackling poverty in Greece and also the causes of the refugee crisis.
Responding to this plea, Roth said Greece cannot handle this problem alone and needs Europe’s help.
On Tuesday, Roth is scheduled to meet Alternate Minister for European Affairs, Nikos Xydakis.
