«Once this health crisis passes, our worst response would
be to plunge even more deeply into feverish consumerism
and new forms of egotistic self-preservation.
God willing, after all this, we will think no longer in terms
of ‘them’ and ‘those’, but only ».
(FT 35)
Towards An Ever Wider “We”,
a clear horizon for our common journey in this world.
WORLD DAY OF MIGRANTS AND REFUGEES 2021
“God created humankind in his image,
in the image of God he created them;
male and female he created them.
God blessed them, and God said to them,
‘Be fruitful and multiply’”.
(Gen 1:27-28)
God created us male and female,
different yet complementary, in order to form a
“WE” destined to become EVER MORE NUMEROUS
in the succession of generations.
God created us in his image, in the image of
HIS OWN TRIUNE BEING, a communion in diversity.
God wished to offer us a path of reconciliation,
not as individuals but as a people, a “WE”,
meant to embrace the entire human family.
Salvation history thus has a “WE” in its beginning
and a “WE” at its end, and at its centre
the mystery of Christ, who died and rose
so “that they may all be one” (Jn 17:21).
The present time shows that this
willed by God is broken and
fragmented, wounded and
disfigured.
And the highest price is being paid by those who
most easily become viewed as others:
foreigners, migrants, the marginalized,
those living on the existential
peripheries.
We are called to work together so that there will be
no more walls that separate us,
no longer others, but only a single
“WE”, encompassing all of humanity.
WORLD DAY OF MIGRANTS AND REFUGEES 2021
The Church’s catholicity, her universality,
must be embraced and expressed in every age,
according to the will and grace of the Lord who promised
to be with us always, until the end of the age.
The Holy Spirit enables us
to embrace everyone,
to build
COMMUNION
in diversity.
In encountering the diversity of foreigners,
migrants and refugees, and in the intercultural dialogue
that can emerge from this encounter,
we have an opportunity to grow as Church
and to enrich one another.
All the baptized, wherever they find themselves,
are by right members of both their local ecclesial
community and the one Church,
dwellers in one home and part of one family.
The Catholic faithful are called to work together
to make the Church become ever more
inclusive.
In our day, the Church is called to go out into the streets
of every existential periphery in order to heal wounds
and to seek out the straying, without prejudice or fear,
without proselytising, but ready to widen her tent
to embrace everyone.
Among those dwelling in those existential peripheries,
we find many migrants and refugees, displaced persons and
victims of trafficking, to whom the Lord wants his love
to be manifested and his salvation preached.
WORLD DAY OF MIGRANTS AND REFUGEES 2021
I also make this appeal to journey together
towards an ever wider “WE”
to all men and women, for the sake of renewing
the human family, building together a future of justice and
peace, and ensuring that no one is left behind.
Our societies will have a “colorful” future, enriched
by diversity and by cultural exchanges.
We must even now
learn to live
together
in harmony and peace.
We must make every effort to break down the walls that
separate us and, in acknowledging our profound
interconnection, build bridges that foster a
In order to ensure the proper care of our common home,
we must
become a “WE” that is ever wider
and more co-responsible, in the profound conviction
that whatever good is done in our world is done for
present and future generations.
Today’s migration movements offer an opportunity
for us to overcome our fears and let ourselves be enriched
by the diversity of each person’s gifts.
We can transform borders into privileged places of
encounter, where the miracle of
an ever wider “We”
can come about.
WORLD DAY OF MIGRANTS AND REFUGEES 2021
We are called to dream together, fearlessly,
as a single human family, as companions on the same
journey, as sons and daughters of the same earth
that is our common home, sisters and brothers all.

WORLD DAY OF MIGRANTS AND REFUGEES 2021

  • 2. «Once this health crisis passes, our worst response would be to plunge even more deeply into feverish consumerism and new forms of egotistic self-preservation. God willing, after all this, we will think no longer in terms of ‘them’ and ‘those’, but only ». (FT 35)
  • 3. Towards An Ever Wider “We”, a clear horizon for our common journey in this world.
  • 5. “God created humankind in his image, in the image of God he created them; male and female he created them. God blessed them, and God said to them, ‘Be fruitful and multiply’”. (Gen 1:27-28)
  • 6. God created us male and female, different yet complementary, in order to form a “WE” destined to become EVER MORE NUMEROUS in the succession of generations. God created us in his image, in the image of HIS OWN TRIUNE BEING, a communion in diversity.
  • 7. God wished to offer us a path of reconciliation, not as individuals but as a people, a “WE”, meant to embrace the entire human family.
  • 8. Salvation history thus has a “WE” in its beginning and a “WE” at its end, and at its centre the mystery of Christ, who died and rose so “that they may all be one” (Jn 17:21).
  • 9. The present time shows that this willed by God is broken and fragmented, wounded and disfigured. And the highest price is being paid by those who most easily become viewed as others: foreigners, migrants, the marginalized, those living on the existential peripheries.
  • 10. We are called to work together so that there will be no more walls that separate us, no longer others, but only a single “WE”, encompassing all of humanity.
  • 12. The Church’s catholicity, her universality, must be embraced and expressed in every age, according to the will and grace of the Lord who promised to be with us always, until the end of the age.
  • 13. The Holy Spirit enables us to embrace everyone, to build COMMUNION in diversity.
  • 14. In encountering the diversity of foreigners, migrants and refugees, and in the intercultural dialogue that can emerge from this encounter, we have an opportunity to grow as Church and to enrich one another.
  • 15. All the baptized, wherever they find themselves, are by right members of both their local ecclesial community and the one Church, dwellers in one home and part of one family.
  • 16. The Catholic faithful are called to work together to make the Church become ever more inclusive.
  • 17. In our day, the Church is called to go out into the streets of every existential periphery in order to heal wounds and to seek out the straying, without prejudice or fear, without proselytising, but ready to widen her tent to embrace everyone.
  • 18. Among those dwelling in those existential peripheries, we find many migrants and refugees, displaced persons and victims of trafficking, to whom the Lord wants his love to be manifested and his salvation preached.
  • 20. I also make this appeal to journey together towards an ever wider “WE” to all men and women, for the sake of renewing the human family, building together a future of justice and peace, and ensuring that no one is left behind.
  • 21. Our societies will have a “colorful” future, enriched by diversity and by cultural exchanges. We must even now learn to live together in harmony and peace.
  • 22. We must make every effort to break down the walls that separate us and, in acknowledging our profound interconnection, build bridges that foster a
  • 23. In order to ensure the proper care of our common home, we must become a “WE” that is ever wider and more co-responsible, in the profound conviction that whatever good is done in our world is done for present and future generations.
  • 24. Today’s migration movements offer an opportunity for us to overcome our fears and let ourselves be enriched by the diversity of each person’s gifts. We can transform borders into privileged places of encounter, where the miracle of an ever wider “We” can come about.
  • 26. We are called to dream together, fearlessly, as a single human family, as companions on the same journey, as sons and daughters of the same earth that is our common home, sisters and brothers all.
  • 30. Rome, Saint John Lateran, 3 May 2021 Feast of Saints Philip and James, Apostles
