Nell’intervista a tutto campo su National Catholic Register l’Ambasciatore d’Ungheria Eduard Habsburg-Lothringen affronta diverse tematiche: il suo incontro col Santo Padre, la questione di una eventuale visita del papa in Ungheria, la propria famiglia, il significato di essere un Asburgo oggi, la questione della migrazione e la relativa posizione ungherese, il papato di Francesco e la propria testi di dottorato sul tomismo.
