Auxiliary Bishop Francisco Javier Acero of the Primatial Archdiocese of Mexico expressed the Church’s profound concern over the “waves of migrants” crossing the country and stressed that those who suffer the most are “unaccompanied minors.”
Speaking with ACI Prensa, CNA’s Spanish-language news partner, Acero said that faced with the complexity of the drama of the migrants, “we are there as a Church accompanying them.”
The bishop pointed to the efforts of the Josephine Sisters who run the Home for Welcoming, Training, and Empowering Women and Migrant Families and Refugees (CAFEMIN) and praised the “commendable work of Sister Magdalena” and of the entire community, who receive migrant minors traveling alone and care for them.
Acero also noted that “during this time, which goes from a little before Easter up to now, the average number of the people who are cared for in all these homes goes from 600 to 900 daily.”
