(Vatican Radio – June 17, 2015) Pope Francis’s Appeal for Refugees
"This coming Saturday [June 20, 2015] marks World Refugee Day, promoted by the United Nations. We pray for the many brothers and sisters who seek refuge far from their native lands, who seek a home where they can live without fear: that they might always be respected in their dignity. I encourage the work of those who bring help to those in need, and it is my hope that the international community should act in a fitting and effective way to prevent the causes of forced migration.
"And I invite everyone to ask forgiveness for those persons and institutions that close the doors on these people who are searching for family, that are searching for safety."
