Cardinal Luis Antonio Tagle shed tears during a press conference while discussing his grandfather who migrated to the Philippines from China.
CARD. LUIS ANTONIO TAGLE
President, Caritas Internationalis
"These refugees reminded me of my “migrant roots.” In them, I saw my grandfather who was born in China...but was forced to leave his homeland as a young boy with his uncle for the Philippines in search of a better future. The Share the Journey campaign, -thank you-, has been a great moment of encounter, solidarity, and for us memory, above all an expression of the love of the Church for people on the move".
