World Day of Migrants and Refugees

108th World Day of Migrants and Refugees – Sunday 25th September

Pope Francis has chosen the theme, ‘Building the Future with Migrants and Refugees’

Lord, make us bearers of hope, so that where there is darkness, your light may shine, and where there is discouragement, confidence in the future may be reborn.

Lord, make us instruments of your justice, so that where there is exclusion, fraternity may flourish, and where there is greed, a spirit of sharing may grow.

Lord, make us builders of your Kingdom, together with migrants and refugees and with all who dwell on the peripheries.

Lord, let us learn how beautiful it is to live together as brothers and sisters.

Amen.

Rome, Saint John Lateran, 9 May 2022
