Pope Francis 'deeply concerned for migrant plight'

'Open your hearts to poor families' pontiff tweets

(ANSA) - Vatican City, August 28 - Pope Francis is deeply concerned for the plight of thousands of migrants fleeing their lands, Vatican Radio said Friday.
    It is an exodus of biblical proportion - stressed the broadcast - with entire families reduced to poverty and risking their lives in search of a better life, far from wars, violence and hunger. The pontiff also invited people to open their hearts in a tweet: "My Lord help us become more generous and always closer to poor families". http://popefrancisnewsapp.com/
