“On behalf of the Bishops of the European Union, I would like to express my sincere congratulations to Roberta Metsola on her election as President of the European Parliament.

We already had the opportunity to work with her and we acknowledge her qualities: she is a brilliant person who will certainly be able to fulfil this important institutional role in an excellent manner.

We look forward to continuing this collaboration for the common good, bringing public institutions closer to European citizens, making young people protagonists of European politics and promoting policies centered on human person, family and community.”
