Pacem in Terris - On Refugees

This week, in honor of the 50th Anniversary of Pacem in Terris, this Sister of Peace is going to offer some of John XXIII's words and prayers for peace here on the blog.  Please join me in praying for peace in our troubled and wounded world.

It is not irrelevant to draw the attention of the world to the fact that  refugees are persons and that all their rights as persons must be recognized.  Refugees cannot lose these rights simply because they are deprived of citizenship of their own States. (PT 105)
