Pope Francis has declared September 29 as the 105th World Day of Migrants and Refugees. Please keep all those displaced from their homes in your prayers in a special way on this day. Here is an excerpt from His Holiness’s message for the occasion:
“. . . The presence of migrants and refugees – and of vulnerable people in general – is an invitation to recover some of those essential dimensions of our Christian existence and our humanity that risk being overlooked in a prosperous society. That is why it is not just about migrants . When we show concern for them, we also show concern for ourselves, for everyone; in taking care of them, we all grow; in listening to them, we also give voice to a part of ourselves that we may keep hidden because it is not well regarded nowadays.”
