Migrants and refugees: men and women in search of peace

"In a spirit of compassion, let us embrace all those fleeing from war and hunger, or forced by discrimination, persecution, poverty and environmental degradation to leave their homelands.
We know that it is not enough to open our hearts to the suffering of others. Much more remains to be done before our brothers and sisters can once again live peacefully in a safe home. Welcoming others requires concrete commitment, a network of assistance and goodwill, vigilant and sympathetic attention, the responsible management of new and complex situations that at times compound numerous existing problems, to say nothing of resources, which are always limited. By practising the virtue of prudence, government leaders should take practical measures to welcome, promote, protect, integrate and, within the limits allowed by a correct understanding of the common good, to permit [them] to become part of a new society. Leaders have a clear responsibility towards their own communities, whose legitimate rights and harmonious development they must ensure, lest they become like the rash builder who miscalculated and failed to complete the tower he had begun to construct."

In a multicultural world

In our multicultural world, sharing and solidarity is necessary to construct a more just and fraternal society more in accord with what God wants for humanity. It depends on all of us, Christians or not, believers or not, in the daily sharing of life as in the projects of great significance.

Civil society offers us through its governmental and nongovernmental organizations, (NGO) opportunities to form alliances to unite our strengths with those who share our concerns and values. The accompaniment of persons and marginalized groups and the ecological concerns could be areas for common actions.
