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 Migration Commission: An Ounce of Prevention is Worth a Pound of Cure

2014-03-25

Dramatic scenes  involving war, forced migration and human trafficking, unfold every day, across the globe. Actually helping victims out on the ground, can be logistically challenging. 

JOHN KLINK
President, International Catholic Migration Commission
"An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.” 

So now the International Catholic Migration Commission is combining its efforts to highlight prevention. Recently John Klink met with ICMC's governing committee in Rome, before heading off to the Philippines to set up a pilot program on the prevention and assistance of human trafficking victims. 

JOHN KLINK
President, International Catholic Migration Commission
"To have an entire bishop’s conference focused on this, rather than having an occasional project here or there is what the Church should be doing and this is a great first step.” 

Both the Church and the government will work together to make it happen. Some of the knowledge is already in house, with women religious leading the cause. 

ICMC's mission extends to conflict ridden areas like Syria, where it's estimated that over 2,5 million people have been forced to flee to neighboring countries. 

JOHN KLINK
President, International Catholic Migration Commission
"It’s the equivalent of the entire city of Chicago, picking up stakes and moving somewhere else.” 

The Commission includes six cardinals, three archbishops and several bishops. As far as Klink's motivation, he likes to echo the Pope's words, where he emphasized that the wounds of Christ are found in the needy, including the homeless, poor, refugees, migrants and the trafficked.
