"On the one hand it make a very clear statement about the need to protect the dignity of the refugees, so it looks at our role like as organizations and as individuals working for refugees. So, looking at people like individuals with rights non just as numbers, but individuals who need to be welcomed and cared for and respected.”

The document was released by the Pontifical Council for the Pastoral Care of Migrants and the Pontifical Council 'Cor Unum'. This document complements the previous one which was released in 1992. Given the fact that migration has changed, this latest version now updates the last.

The Pope has been quite vocal about the need to help refugees during these challenging times. Now the Holy See is extending that call to all Christians so that the human dignity of the displaced and the refugees is respected in their country of origin and in their newly adopted countries.
