by Archbishop Jason Charles Gordon, January 9
Men and women in search of peace. This is how the Holy Father, Pope Francis, calls migrants and refugees. His message for the 104th World Day of Migrants and Refugees, being celebrated on January 14 (today) again focused on four verbs—welcoming, protecting, promoting and integrating migrants and refugees. We need to listen deeply to the message of the Holy Father. This is a truth that requires of us pastoral conversion and conversion of heart.
