CWN Editor's Note: Bishop Paul McAleenan, the Westminster auxiliary who serves as the English bishops’ lead bishop for migrants, welcomed 60 people who spent ten weeks walking from the Italian-French border to London to express their solidarity with migrants. “My own experience of meeting asylum seekers, both in Calais and in the UK, reminded me how important it is for us to ensure their God-given human dignity is recognized and celebrated,” the prelate said.
