Telegram from the Pope to migrants

28 April, 2010 | | Tema: Holy See

Vatican City, 28 APR 2010 (VIS) – Made public today was a telegram sent by Cardinal Secretary of State Tarcisio Bertone S.D.B., in the Pope’s name, to Archbishop Antonio Maria Veglio, president of the Pontifical Council for the Pastoral Care of Migrants and Itinerant Peoples, for the eighth European Congress on Migration, taking place in the Spanish city of Malaga from 27 April to 1 May.

In the telegram the Holy Father greets organisers and participants in the meeting, which has as its theme “Overcoming Fears and Outlining Prospects”. He encourages them to continue their efforts to ensure adequate pastoral care for people suffering the consequences of abandoning their own country, and find themselves without a land of reference.

He likewise “exhorts them to co-ordinate initiatives and plans to ensure that the light of the Gospel reaches everyone and, with it, the firm hope to see recognition for their rights and a guarantee for their possibilities to live a life dignified in all aspects”.
