CWN Editor's Note: “In these troubled times that see Afghans seeking refuge, I pray for the most vulnerable among them,” Pope Francis said on September 5. “I pray that many countries will welcome and protect those seeking a new life.”
“I pray also for the internally displaced persons and that they may receive assistance and the necessary protection,” the Pope added. “May young Afghans receive education, an essential good for human development. And may all Afghans, whether at home, in transit, or in host countries, live with dignity, in peace and fraternity with their neighbors.”
