‘We Must Shape Life in the Spirit of the Gospel’, Cardinal Erdő Says

Hungary Today 2019.04.22.

It is the responsibility of lay people — politicians, economic players, academics, artists — to shape life in the spirit of the gospel, Cardinal Peter Erdő, Archbishop of Esztergom-Budapest, said in his Easter interview broadcast on public current affairs channel M1 late on Sunday.

“We must convey the love of God to the people,” the archbishop added.

“God, who in his wisdom created man, wants us to be happy,” Cardinal Erdő said.

In response to a question, he said it was necessary to enshrine Christianity as well as “our Greco-Roman heritage” in the European basic documents.
