    Welcoming Refugees is a Potential Test for Entering Heaven on Judgement Day.

    Support for migrants is so central to Pope Francis' vision for the church that he has made welcoming them a potential test for those seeking entry to Heaven on Judgment Day.

    The pontiff's advocacy for refugee rights faces a diplomatic test Wednesday when he begins a five-day visit to Poland, where a populist government has slammed the door on most asylum-seekers.

    Francis is scheduled to meet Polish President Andrzej Duda in Krakow's millennium-old castle atop Wawel Hill where, in the neighboring cathedral, Polish national heroes for centuries have been laid to rest. He then will hold a question-and-answer session with Poland's bishops behind closed doors.

    Ahead of the pope's arrival, Polish Interior Minister Mariusz Blaszczak defended the ruling Law and Justice party's opposition to immigration by citing the Bastille Day truck massacre of 84 people in Nice, France. Blaszczak argued that such violence was an inevitable consequence of multiculturalism.

    The pope suggests that reluctance or refusal to shelter newcomers in need conflicts with the parable of the Good Samaritan, who offered aid to a robbed, wounded stranger.

    Addressing the faithful earlier this month in St. Peter's Square, Francis said that ultimately "we will be judged on the basis of works of mercy."

    "The Lord will be able to say to us: 'Do you remember? That migrant, who so many wanted to kick out, was me.'"


    Seeking to inspire by example, Francis in April brought 12 Syrians back with him to Rome after visiting a migrant camp on the Greek island of Lesbos, where tens of thousands were stranded after perilous crossings from nearby Turkey in often overcrowded boats.

    The Rev. David Hollenbach, a professor of ethics at Georgetown University's School of Foreign Affairs in Washington, said the pope's championing of migrants is "politically important and socially important, but also religiously important to the identity of Christianity." Hollenbach, who like Francis is a Jesuit, said in a telephone interview that the treatment of migrants and foreigners is "central in the Bible."

    It's also intrinsic to the pope's definition of a Christian.

    Returning in February from a pilgrimage to Mexico, Francis told reporters aboard his plane: "I think that a person who thinks of building walls and not bridges isn't Christian." The pope was responding to a question about Donald Trump, the Republican U.S. presidential candidate, who says he wants to build a border wall to bar Mexicans from the United States.

    A Polish commentator, Adam Szostkiewicz, said he expected the pope to raise Poland's opposition to aiding refugees during this week's visit because "this is the central theme of his pontificate in Europe. This is a European problem."

    Szostkiewicz said he expected the pope to argue against Poland's policy, which he compared to Pontius Pilate's attitude to the crucifixion of Jesus: "We wash our hands. This does not concern us." But he forecast that any papal appeal would spark only a momentary stir, not any shift in government policy.

    "It will be good if he says it, and it will be commented on, but it will soon be forgotten," he said.

    Catholic figures in Poland have been widely seen to reinforce the government's nationalist views. University of Maryland history professor Piotr Kosicki recalled how a Polish priest railed against Muslims, Jews and "leftists" during an address to an Independence Day rally in Warsaw in November. Kosicki, writing in the Catholic magazine Commonweal, concluded that the priest, Jacek Miedlar, represented "a nationalist revival for which being Catholic and Polish implies also being anti-European, anti-pluralist and anti-liberal."

    Some within the church have been struck by how Poland's anti-migrant stand is equated with protecting the country's Polish and Catholic identity.

    "Turning away the refugees would not have been so readily accepted by our society had it not been done in the name of the defense of Christianity and of being Polish," wrote the Rev. Leon Wisniewski, a Dominican friar, in the Catholic intellectual weekly Tygodnik Powszechny.

    At the Vatican, the visiting spokesman for Poland's bishops conference was asked by The Associated Press how Poland and the Polish church might react to Francis' insistence on welcoming migrants.

    "It's not a black and white question," said the Rev. Pawel Rytel-Andrianik, who stressed that Poland has taken in refugees, most of them from countries with predominantly Christian backgrounds.

    He said Polish bishops had issued their own appeal for parishes to shelter refugees the day before Francis, in September 2015, similarly called on each parish to host a family of refugees.

    Most of Poland's refugees come from Russia, Ukraine and other neighbors in the former Soviet Union, not from Syria, Afghanistan, Iraq or Africa, major sources for people trying to gain European Union protection.

    The right-wing Polish government elected in October has refused to observe an EU-wide agreement on sharing the burden of accommodating tens of thousands of asylum seekers largely stuck in Italy and Greece.

    Analysts see a wide gulf in Polish attitudes to Francis and to the only Polish pope, John Paul II, whom Francis canonized in 2014.

    While John Paul was beloved by Poles for his staunch defense of the Solidarity labor movement that helped to topple Soviet rule in 1989, many Poles don't relate to Francis' world view.

    Kosicki told The AP in a telephone interview that "the substance of what he says doesn't compute for the vast majority of Poland."

    Anglo-Saxons are forbidden the same level of racial consciousness of other groups (even amongst Whites).

    While our many accomplishments are forgotten, there is no end of blaming Anglo-Saxons for the problems and inadequacies of the world (White & non-white alike).

    That's basically nonsense. The story about the Good Samaritan isn't at all about helping any random stranger without question, and people who push a liberal agenda try to justify it quite like that - including church officials.

    The way I've always read this passage -- perhaps because I'm not a Christian, I might lack some intrinsic insight therupon -- was that what was to be stressed was that the Samaritans were also a Jewish group, and that you should reach out to members of your people regardless of any sectarian squabble.

    What is probably the most Nationalist sentiment in the entire bible, that yes, indeed would have called upon any German taking in their Volksdeutsch brothers from the east, is now re-read to justify do-gooderism and bringing havoc all over Europe.

    Dear Pope, art thou aware of the story about the Tower of Babel? I guess you're not. Otherwise you wouldn't be saying such utter nonsense.
    -In kalte Schatten versunken... /Germaniens Volk erstarrt / Gefroren von Lügen / In denen die Welt verharrt-
    -Die alte Seele trauernd und verlassen / Verblassend in einer erklärbaren Welt / Schwebend in einem Dunst der Wehmut / Ein Schrei der nur unmerklich gellt-
    -Auch ich verspüre Demut / Vor dem alten Geiste der Ahnen / Wird es mir vergönnt sein / Gen Walhalla aufzufahren?-

    (Heimdalls Wacht, In kalte Schatten versunken, stanzas 4-6)

    The Catholics need to ditch this pope and those that elected him. They need to get a pope more like Urban II.
    Life is like a fire hydrant- sometimes you help people put out their fires, but most of the time you just get peed on by every dog in the neighborhood.

    While I'm not Catholic, I know many good people are.

    I cannot believe the behavior of this Pope Francis.

    Washing their invader feet and then they attack churches in Europe.

    I don't know much, but perhaps this is why the got rid of Pope Ratzinger in 2013, when they started having their Bilderberg meetings to open our borders and destroy our people.
    I wonder if he would have championed it all like that.
    I doubt it.

    The KJV says: Blessed be he that cometh in the name of the LORD.

    Do the so-called refugees acknowledge that Jesus Christ is the Son of God the Father, the King of kings and the Lord of lords?
