Pope’s right-hand man on migrants pleased with the important place taken by migratory issues in the synod
Our companion Fr. Michael Czerny, SJ., Undersecretary of the Migrants and Refugee Section (Holy See), gave an interview to the TV channel Sale + Luce (the Italian-language television station Salt + Light), concerning the work of the XVth Synod on faith, youth and vocational discernment. In this interview, Fr. Czerny was pleased with the important place occupied by migratory issues in the work of the synod. This is a critical issue for the church and the world, he says. The Church has a lot to learn from migrants and refugees, he adds.
On the website of the Dicastery for Integral Human Development, one can consult many documents and hear the testimonies of young migrants and refugees taking part in the work of this synod:
April 17, 2019 — This coming April 22, 2019, we will be celebrating two different events: Easter Monday and Earth Day. “Today the waves of destruction, personal and planetary, revert to springs of hope," writes Fr. Erik Oland, Superior of the Jesuits in Canada in a new letter to the Province.
April 11, 2019 — René Goupil is one of two such residences in the Province that provides a caring and supportive environment for elderly Jesuits. They may be active in the field no longer but the depth of life experience they bring to the mission of 'praying for the Society' can only enhance the quality of their prayer.
