CWN Editor's Note: Meeting on December 19 with a group of refugees, Pope Francis spoke of “the inescapable commitment of the Church to save the lives of migrants, so that then we could welcome, protect, promote, and integrate them.” He voiced his support for those who “prefer to face a stormy sea rather than die slowly in Libyan detention camps, places of torture and ignoble slavery.”
