Arizona Mass for migrants shows Catholic unity crosses borders

Tucson, Ariz., Oct 26, 2016 / 12:22 am (CNA/EWTN News).- Catholic unity transversed the border on Sunday when Archbishop Christophe Pierre, the new apostolic nuncio to the U.S., celebrated Mass at Arizona’s border with Mexico.“His decision to join us is a reminder that this is an issue very important to our Holy Father,” said Bishop Gerald F. Kicanas of Tucson, the Associated Press reports.The Mass was celebrated Sunday afternoon near the Port of Entry in downtown Noagles, Ariz. About 250 people attended the Mass from the U.S. side, while it was unclear how many attended on the Mexico side. Previous Masses have included the distribution of Holy Communion through the border fence, but border patrol officers did not allow this on Sunday.Bishop Kicanas said the Oct. 23 Mass aimed to bring attention to immigrants and refugees.“The economic migrant is not a criminal. The economic migrant is someone seeking a decent way of life for themselves, for their family,&rdq...

To welcome the stranger is to welcome Christ, Pope Francis says

Vatican City, Oct 26, 2016 / 05:09 am (Aid to the Church in Need).- When we perform the corporal works of mercy – specifically welcoming the stranger in the form migrants and refugees – we are welcoming Christ in them, and helping to restore their full dignity as humans, Pope Francis said Wednesday.“These works, in fact, make evident that Christians are not tired and lazy in waiting for the final encounter with the Lord, but every day go out, recognizing his face in the many people asking for help.”Continuing his reflection on the corporal works of mercy, the Pope’s catechesis during his Oct. 26 general audience centered on Matthew 25:35-36: “I was a stranger and you welcomed me, naked and you clothed me.”The works of mercy related to strangers are “timelier than ever,” he said, adding that “the economic crisis, armed conflict and climate change drive many people to emigrate.”“However, migration is not a new phe...

Syrian refugees arrive to Rome with the hope of a better life

Rome, Italy, Oct 26, 2016 / 03:03 am (CNA).- This week 130 Syrian refugees landed in Rome as part of a pilot program aimed at providing safe passage for migrants seeking to enter Europe, all of whom voiced their gratitude and desire to leave war behind.“I want to live normal, as a human, just that.”This is what a young woman, who preferred not to give her name, told CNA just hours after arriving to Rome from Lebanon.A university student studying geology, she is originally from the southern city of As-Suwayda, but left her friends and relatives behind and came to Italy by herself in the hopes of continuing her studies and living a normal life, far away from war.The situation in Syria “is destroying everything. Every person, every dream, you can’t dream. There is killing everywhere. This is Syria now, not before,” she said through tears.Wiping her face dry, the young woman didn’t want to talk about her family, but said she came to Italy “to co...

Santa Marta Group meets to counteract human trafficking

(Vatican Radio) Police chiefs, Bishops, Religious sisters and representatives from civil society, who make up the Santa Marta Group, are joining together this week, 26-27 October, in the Vatican to share and encourage best practice in the struggle against human trafficking.Among those taking part in the conference is Archbishop Stephen Brislin of Cape Town, South Africa. He spoke with Christopher Wells about the meeting.“What the conference tries to do is to bring together bishops and heads of the Church together with chiefs of police from various countries,” he said.And so we often have chiefs of police from South America, from Canada, North America, various European countries and some African countries as well, and Asian countries, and sometimes the presidents of the different episcopal conferences, or some bishops who are particularly concerned about the issue. And the idea of course is that together with the police we believe that the church has a very important ro...

Pope: 'the only solution to the migration crisis is solidarity'

(Vatican Radio) Pope Francis on Wednesday called for solidarity with migrants and refugees.Speaking to the crowd gathered in St. Peter’s Square for the weekly General Audience, the Pope reflected on two particular corporal works of mercy - welcoming the stranger and clothing the naked – and said that the growing numbers of refugees fleeing war, famine and dire poverty calls us to welcome and care for these brothers and sisters.Pope Francis reflected on the many stories of migration that are to be found in the Bible and on how, through the centuries, so many committed Christians have found generous ways of meeting the needs of people fleeing violence and injustice. “Today – he said – the current economic crisis unfortunately fosters attitudes of closure instead of welcome”.   “In some parts of the world walls and barriers are being built. It appears that the silent work of men and women who, in different ways, do what they ca...
