Pope Francis: No people is criminal and no religion is terrorist

February 17, 2017. Pope Francis has sent an important message to the Meetings of Popular Movements that is taking place in Modesto (California). The pope denounces the "moral blindness of this indifference”: "under the guise of what is politically correct or ideologically fashionable, one looks at those who suffer without touching them. But they are televised live; they are talked about in euphemisms and with apparent tolerance, but nothing is done systematically to heal the social wounds or to confront the structures that leave so many brothers and sisters by the wayside”.

International Catholic Migrant Commission: We want to be the face of Christ

International Catholic Migrant Commission, President
"The people that we work with primarily are the most vulnerable of the refugees.”

From children to the elderly, the ICMC has staff spread out in over 40 countries to help those in need. Even though it's not very known,  it's very busy. It does a lot more supplying food, housing and education. If often helps refugees so they can settle into a different country all together. Right now there's a big focus on the Middle East, since for some, going back home is a matter of life and death. 

JOHN KLINK 
International Catholic Migrant Commission, President
"We have processed approximately one half of all of the Iraqis who have fled Iraq and now we all doing the same thing for Syrians.”

At a time, when there are different organizations, groups and institutes that help migrants and refugees, Klink says the ICMC is different in that it represents the Universal Church. He says the Commission wants to be the face of Christ those who want to help the needy directly or indirectly. 

JOHN KLINK 
International Catholic Migrant Commission, President
"We're told in the Gospel of Matthew 25 that by so doing you are literally doing it for Christ and you get to know Christ by doing it. Not everyone can go over to Lebanon, Turkey and do it themselves with their own hands, but we are their hands and we therefore, through the mystical body are the hands of Christ for these people.” 

Preventing human trafficking is also a priority.  Being based in Geneva, Switzerland, many bishops conferences, or even individual bishops don't yet know about the Commission and its work. Klink says, they're hoping to get the word out, so people can help in whichever way they can, starting off he says, with prayers.
