Monday, June 27 2016

The 2016 World Tourism Day will be celebrated this September 27. The Pontifical Council for the Pastoral Care of Migrants and Itinerant Peoples has released its annual Message, on the theme Tourism for All - Promoting Universal Accessibility. The Pontifical Council states that "the concept 'sustainable tourism' includes the commitment to obtaining a quality of tourism that is respectful of the cultural and environmental diversity of the place that welcomes, taking into consideration both present and future repercussions. The encyclical letter of Pope Francis, Laudato si', can be of great assistance in the good management of Creation, which has been entrusted to all of humanity."
