Pope Francis appeals to the international community to make the situation of Refugees in the world a priority
At the end of his Catechesis during the general audience, the Holy Father spoke of the World Refugee Day, which is commemorated on June 19th. The Holy father said that the face of Christ is imprinted in the refugees. He then appealed for “special consideration of the situation of refugee families who are often forced to quickly leave their home and homeland and in the process of running away lose everything they have and own including security, just in order to flee from violence, persecution, or severe discrimination for a number of reasons.
