On Refugees and Migrants: Sharing the Journey

by Hunter Estes (SFS'19)

Archbishop Silvano Tomasi spoke to our community on Pope Francis’ recently launched initiative for refugees and migrants around the globe. The Vatican’s campaign is called “Share the Journey” and encourages the global community to better understand the plight of migrants and refugees and to take serious and comprehensive steps towards reforming our systems so that we may welcome and support the many people who have been forced from their homes. Through this campaign, Pope Francis challenges us to listen to and understand the stories of migrants, to open our arms in embracing them, to build a welcoming culture, and to seek public action in support of these displaced peoples.
