Pope Francis urged to walk together with migrants and refugees
Vatican City, Sep 26 (Prensa Latina) Pope Francis urged today to walk together, without prejudice or fear, alongside migrants, refugees, displaced persons, victims of human trafficking and the abandoned, whom he considered the most vulnerable.
We are called to build an increasingly inclusive world, which does not exclude anyone, said the Supreme Pontiff after concluding the prayer of the Angelus when referring to the 107th edition of World Migrants and Refugees Day, an anniversary of the Catholic Church commemorated today with the theme Towards a bigger and bigger us.
I join all those who in various parts of the world are celebrating this day, I greet the faithful gathered in Loreto at the initiative of the Italian Episcopal Conference in favor of migrants and refugees, said Francisco.
The pope also greeted and thanked, for their 'generous commitment', the different ethnic communities present in St. Peter's Square, with their flags, and the representatives of the Apri project of the Italian Catholic relief agency Caritas, among others.
