E-mail Print PDF

The 102nd World Day of Migrants and Refugees will be celebrated January 17, 2016. The theme of Pope Francis' Message is "Migrants and refugees challenge us: The response of the Gospel of mercy". In his Message, the Holy Father says that "migrants are our brothers and sisters in search of a better life, far away from poverty, hunger, exploitation and the unjust distribution of the planet's resources which are meant to be equitably shared by all. Don't we all want a better, more decent and prosperous life to share with our loved ones?"
