Français | English | Español | Português



In his 1 January 2018 Message for the World Day of Peace "Migrants and refugees: men and women in search of peace", Pope Francis urges all Christians to view global migration as an opportunity to build peace.  Calling on each of us to embrace all those forced to flee their homelands for social, economic, cultural, or environmental reasons, he challenges individuals, governments, and institutions to welcome, protect, promote and integrate all who come to our countries in search of peace.


We invite you to spend time between the World Day of Peace (January 1) and the World Day of Migrants and Refugees (January 14)internalizing the Pope’s message and discerning additional ways in which you might welcome newcomers to your country using this reflection available in FrançaisEnglishEspañol, and Português
