Forced like Jesus Christ to flee...
World Day of the Migrants and the Refugees
The 106th World Day of Migrants and Refugees (WDMR) will be celebrated on Sunday 27th September 2020.
With the title “Like Jesus Christ, forced to flee”, Pope Francis urges us this year to discover the reality of internally displaced people more deeply. Every month, a new video of Pope Francis and other multimedia materials delve into the sub-themes present in the Message of the Holy Father. The first sub-theme was “To know in order to understand” and the second one was “To be close in order to serve”.
You can watch the third, newly released video, in which the Holy Father explores the sub-theme “To listen in order to be reconciled.” It offers the real-life testimony of an internally displaced person that explains how teamwork and mutual acceptance can create a brighter future and peaceful coexistence between people of different religions.
