Hungarian Church shows solidarity with homeless

A project to show solidarity with the homeless marked the feast of St. Elizabeth of Hungary last week in the Hungarian Diocese of Szeged. Young people spend an evening with the homeless which includes sharing meals, providing clothing, and spending time in recreational activities.
“They organize programmes with them, like playing chess, reciting poems, singing songs, and praying together with the homeless,” explained Bishop László Kiss-Rigó.
“Of course, the organizers are well-aware of the fact that with this one single night of solidarity they will not solve the problem of the homeless,” Bishop Kiss-Rigó told Vatican Radio.

“But the aim is, on the one hand, to offer a very effective sign of solidarity, and the other aim is to try to focus the attention of the public to the problem of the homeless,” he said.
