The Holy See has released the Holy Father's Message for the 51st World Day of Peace, which will be celebrated on 1 January 2018. The theme chosen by Pope Francis is "Migrants and refugees: men and women in search of peace". In his message, the Holy Father recalls "that it is not enough to open our hearts to the suffering of others. Much more remains to be done before our brothers and sisters can once again live peacefully in a safe home. Welcoming others requires concrete commitment, a network of assistance and goodwill, vigilant and sympathetic attention, the responsible management of new and complex situations that at times compound numerous existing problems, to say nothing of resources, which are always limited."
