TOP POPE FRANCIS QUOTES ABOUT MIGRATION
Look At The Migrant As A Person With A Story
Our world is facing a refugee crisis of a magnitude not seen since the Second World War. This presents us with great challenges and many hard decisions. On this continent, too, thousands of persons are led to travel north in search of a better life for themselves and for their loved ones, in search of greater opportunities. Is this not what we want for our own children? We must not be taken aback by their numbers, but rather view them as persons, seeing their faces and listening to their stories, trying to respond as best we can to their situation. To respond in a way which is always humane, just and fraternal. We need to avoid a common temptation nowadays: to discard whatever proves troublesome. Let us remember the Golden Rule: “Do unto others as you would have them do unto you” (Mt 7:12)...In a word, if we want security, let us give security; if we want life, let us give life; if we want opportunities, let us provide opportunities.
Pope Francis, Address, 2015
"Refugees are people like everyone else."
