Church- Governments must welcome migrants- and not fortify already tight controls

(Social Justice South Africa; Vatican Information Service 08/10/08; Vatican Information Service 08/10/08)

Article by Marc Aupiais

The Pontifical Council for the Pastoral Care of Migrants and Itinerant People has delivered Holy Father Pope Benedict XVI's message on Migration- with the theme that Saint Paul was a migrant throughout Asia minor, and the middle east- clarifying that migration cannot be prevented- but rather should be regulated in a efficient and Godly manner- not simply through closing the door on those traveling- but by advancing a regulated orderly way of allowing migration and its beneficial results.

The Holy See is promoting the brotherly bond of Christians and people themselves throughout the world- showing the importance of charity- in a prudent and acceptable way which will allow migration and world issues to become beneficial.

The address is ahead of "World Day of Migrants and Refugees" (Vatican Information Service 08/10/08) to be celebrated on the 18/01/2009.
