Pope encourages pastoral work with migrants
April 28, 2010
Pope Benedict XVI has sent a message of support to the 8th European Congress on Migration, being held this week in Malaga, Spain.
In his message-- which was addressed to Archbishop Antonio Maria Veglio, the president of the Pontifical Council for Migrants-- encouraged pastoral work with migrants "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."
