In the wake of President Donald Trump's recent policy on refugees, U.S. Catholics should stay close to their bishops, who are providing a clear, correct and unified response to the issue, a Vatican official said.
Jesuit Fr. Michael Czerny is secretary of the new Vatican Dicastery for the Promotion of Integral Human Development, which includes an office for refugees and migrants, currently headed by the Pope himself.
Fr. Czerny told CNA that right now, the U.S. bishops are doing a good job responding to the policy. "I think the key is for Catholics to stay close to their bishops. Dialogue and unity are the two keys to a moment like this," he said.
"And the bishops are speaking clearly, they're speaking loudly, they're speaking with a great deal of unity. Those who are concerned should listen to them, and also should reach out to help them."
