In a preface to a new Vatican guide on the pastoral care of migrants, Pope Francis highlighted the duty of Catholics to promote fraternity with others.
“All of us are called to commit ourselves to universal fraternity. For Catholics, this translates into being ever more faithful to our being Catholic,” he wrote in Pastoral Orientations on Intercultural Migrant Ministry, published on March 24.
The 20-page booklet was created by the migrants and refugees section of the Vatican Dicastery for Promoting Integral Human Development.
“As I wrote in the Message for the 107th World Day of Migrants and Refugees, ‘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,’” he said.
