Pope Francis’ message for the World Day of Migrants and Refugees echoed throughout the world and also throughout the Holy Land.
“Migrants: vulnerable and voiceless minors.” This is the essence of Pope Francis’ message for the World Day of Migrants and Refugees celebrated on Sunday, January 15. A current topic. Bear in mind that in 2016, more than 26,000 people who landed in the shores of Italy were children and unaccompanied minors.
With the mass celebrated in Jaffa -Tel Aviv, the Apostolic Administrator of the Latin Patriarchate of Jerusalem brought attention to this harsh reality, stressing that refugees constitute an essential part of the Church in the Holy Land, where the situation is complex.
