Share the Journey Initiative: Pope Thanks Caritas Internationalis

A ‘Global’ Pilgrimage

Pope Francis encouraged the initiative of Caritas Internationalis to better know and understand migrants, during the “Share the Journey” initiative – “Share the Journey”. He made his comments after praying the noonday Angelus on October 21, 2018, with the pilgrims assembled in St. Peter’s Square.

The pope then published on his Twitter account @Pontifex, this invitation: “Join us in Caritas to make a million kilometers with migrants and refugees. We are all on the road to Emmaus, called to look at the Face of Christ. #sharejourney “.

After the Angelus the pope greeted a group that participated in this initiative in Rome, with Cardinal Tagle, this Sunday, October 21, 2018, saying: “I address a special thought to the group of Caritas Internationalis, led by the President, Cardinal Luís Antonio Tagle, with some bishops and people from various countries of the world. ”

It is a question of “transforming” the relationship with migrants, explained the pope: “You made a short pilgrimage to Rome to express the desire to walk together and thus to get to know each other better. I encourage this initiative to “share the journey”, which is promoted in many cities and can transform our relationship with migrants. Thank you very much to Caritas! “
