‘Welcome the stranger,’ bishops exhort Irish Catholics
December 06, 2019
CWN Editor's Note: The bishops called on “all Catholic parishes and communities to welcome and assist refugees in their local areas in light of the Gospel message.” Lamenting “the use of intolerant language in public and political discourse as well as the growing hostility towards migrants and refugees coming to Ireland,” the bishops added that “Christians, in their language and actions, are asked to lead by example and to welcome the stranger.”The above note supplements, highlights, or corrects details in the original source (link above).
