Short Pope Francis’ Quotes About Migration of Humans

 Short Pope Francis’ Quotes About Migration of Humans


1. Look At The Migrant As A Person With A Story

“We must not be taken aback by their numbers, but rather view them as persons, seeing their faces and listening to their stories, trying to respond as best we can to their situation. To respond in a way which is always humane, just and fraternal. We need to avoid a common temptation nowadays: to discard whatever proves troublesome. Let us remember the Golden Rule: “Do unto others as you would have them do unto you (Mt 7:12)…In a word, if we want security, let us give security; if we want life, let us give life; if we want opportunities, let us provide opportunities.” (image below)
Pope Francis, Address, 2015

Pope Francis Quotes about migration

2. Refugees Are People Just Like Us

“Refugees are people like everyone else.”
Pope Francis, Angelus, 19th June 2016

3. Don’t We All Want A Better Life?

“Migrants are our brothers and sisters in search of a better life, far away from poverty, hunger, exploitation and the unjust distribution of the planet’s resources which are meant to be equitably shared by all. Don’t we all want a better, more decent and prosperous life to share with our loved ones?”
Pope Francis, Message, 17th January 2016

4. Integrating Migrants Can Become Mutual Enrichment

“The presence of migrants and refugees seriously challenges the various societies which accept them. Those societies are faced with new situations which could create serious hardship unless they are suitably motivated, managed and regulated. How can we ensure that integration will become mutual enrichment, open up positive perspectives to communities, and prevent the danger of discrimination, racism, extreme nationalism or xenophobia?”
Pope Francis, Message, 17th January 2016

5. “Do Not Be Robbed Of Joy”

“Dear brothers and sisters, migrants and refugees! At the heart of the Gospel of mercy the encounter and acceptance by others are intertwined with the encounter and acceptance of God himself. Welcoming others means welcoming God in person! Do not let yourselves be robbed of the hope and joy of life born of your experience of God’s mercy, as manifested in the people you meet on your journey!”
Pope Francis, Message, 17th January 2016
