Pope Francis ‘scheduled to meet President, PM’
“It’s not true the Holy Father would have excluded anyone from his programme,” the organisation said in a statement.
The pontiff is scheduled to arrive in Hungary on September 12 and attend closing Mass of the 52nd International Eucharistic Congress. “Before Mass, a separate meeting is planned with Hungarian state leaders, government members and other high-ranking state leaders,” the statement said.
According to press reports, the pontiff wanted to bypass meeting Hungarian political officials in protest against the Hungarian government’s policy regarding migrants.
