PM Orbán: Christians, Hungarians in particular, must always be ready to defend their faith, country and family

“It is important for our economy to be strong. It is important for our young people to be smart, and to stand their ground in competition," PM Orbán said

During a thanksgiving service to mark the exterior refurbishment of the Roman Catholic St. George’s Church, Prime Minister Viktor Orbán said it is the duty of Christian democratic political leaders to protect and to strengthen the way of life that has stemmed from the Christian faith: human dignity, family, country and church communities.

PM Orbán said the prosperity of our families, the advancement of our children and future generations, the security of our lives and our national cohesion are all values which we can only defend and fulfil together and only on the two-thousand-year-old foundations of Christianity.

The Prime Minister highlighted that Christians, Hungarians in particular, must always be ready to defend their faith, country and family.

The PM also pointed out that today twice as many children go to church schools as ten years ago, and churches look after elderly people and strengthen communities often beyond their means.

“It is important for our economy to be strong. It is important for our young people to be smart, and to stand their ground in competition. But it is at least as important for them to know where they belong. That they know where their home is, and what heritage they have received from their parents, their grandparents, from those who went before them,” PM Orbán added.
