The 106th World Day of Migrants and Refugees (WDMR) will be celebrated on Sunday 27th September 2020.
With the title “Like Jesus Christ, forced to flee”, Pope Francis urges us this year to discover the reality of internally displaced people more deeply. Every month, a new video of Pope Francis and other multimedia materials delve into the sub-themes present in the Message of the Holy Father. The past sub-themes were “To know in order to understand”, “To be close in order serve”, “To listen in order to be reconciled”.
One could watch the fourth, newly released video, in which the Holy Father explores the sub-theme “To share in order to grow”. It offers the real-life testimony of an internally displaced person who describes how sharing makes us more human, makes us believe more in God and feel that we are His children.
In the video, the Holy Father urges us to share in order to grow together, without leaving anyone out.
