Pope Francis just returned to the Vatican from his trip to Greece with twelve extra passengers in tow.
They’re Syrian refugees selected from the Moria encampment on the Greek island of Lesbos, where the Pontiff was visiting, and are composed of three family units, including six children. All are Muslim, and all had their homes bombed in the Syrian civil war. Once the families arrive in Italy, a Catholic charitable organization will care for them and help find them jobs.
Liberal mouthpieces were quick to praise the Pontiff and call ‘shame’ upon the rest of Europe, which is reeling from having taken in vast numbers of Middle East refugees.

Pope Francis' acts of love should inspire us as Americans and we should heed his call to welcome refugees with open arms.

If you think that these families were selected from all the refugees at the camp in the same way a child would pick out a rescue kitty from a shelter, you’d be incorrect. Francis himself told reporters on the flight back to Italy that the process involved planning and paperwork by the governments of the Vatican, Italy, and Greece. In other words, they were screened and vetted by three separate nations.
