Pope Francis and Refugees

Refugees from war and ISIS deserve our respect and service.  A wide range of institutions struggle to serve their daily needs including Catholic Relief Services, Caritas Internationalis, Doctors Without Borders, UNHCR, and many others.  Pope Francis in a public act of love will wash the feet of refugees on Holy Thursday, see Pope Francis to Wash Refugee’s Feet. Pope Francis calls the world to the corporal and spiritual works of mercy.  It is time that we put our fear aside and emulate the faith hope and love that have always been the hallmark of people of good will and of true Christianity.
