A Stranger and You Welcomed Me

A Call to Mercy and Solidarity with Migrants and Refugees

by Pope Francis

The plight of migrants and refugees has been a constant and urgent priority for Pope Francis. On his first trip outside of Rome to the Island of Lampedusa, a waystation for refugees in the Mediterranean, he spoke of the many who have drowned: “We are a society which has forgotten how to weep, how to expe­rience compassion . . . the globalization of indif­ference has taken from us the ability to weep!”
