migrants, refugees

On May 13, 2020 Pope Francis issued his document proclaiming the World Day of Migrants and Refugees (WDMR) with its theme “Like Jesus Christ, Forced to Flee. Welcoming, protecting, promoting and integrating internally displaced persons”.

You can read the entire statement from the Pope here: Forced to Flee

Migrants & Refugees Section is a small action-oriented Vatican office personally directed by Pope Francis to ensure that those forced to flee are not shut out or left behind. There are many resources, videos, posters, and documents which expand on this theme. One such document is entitled “Pastoral Orientations on Internally Displaced Persons“.

The Pope discusses this theme in a video “To Know in order to Understand“.
