Pope calls on young immigrants to build just society

.- At the conclusion of Sunday’s Angelus, the Pope called the immigrant youth of the world to contribute in building a just and fraternal society in the countries where they reside.

“Today celebrates the World Day of Migrants and Refugees, which puts its attention this year on young immigrants,” said the Pontiff.

Many young people are living away from their families and countries, stated the Holy Father, “particularly at risk are young women and children.”  The Pope expressed “appreciation for those working in favor of young immigrants, for their families and for their employment and schooling.”

Pope Benedict concluded by encouraging the young travelers to commit to building a just and fraternal world, “fulfilling your duties respecting the laws” and never getting “carried away by the violence.”
