“One Human Family” – Pope’s Message for 2011 World Day of Migrants and Refugees. “Dear Brothers and Sisters, the World Day of Migrants and Refugees offers the whole Church an opportunity to reflect on … the growing phenomenon of migration, to pray that hearts may open to Christian welcome and to the effort to increase in the world justice and charity, pillars on which to build an authentic and lasting peace. ‘As I have loved you, so you also should love one another’ (John 13:34), is the invitation that the Lord forcefully addresses to us and renews us constantly: if the Father calls us to be beloved children in his dearly beloved Son, he also calls us to recognize each other as brothers and sisters in Christ.” Read the full text on the Vatican’s website: http://www.vatican.va/holy_father/benedict_xvi/messages/migration/documents/hf_ben-xvi_mes_20100927_world-migrants-day_en.html
I sought the LORD, and He answered me, and delivered me from all my fears. – Psalm 34:4
