Pope Francis' World Day of Peace Message - 1 January 2018

Pope Francis' message for the celebration of World Day of Peace on 1 January 2018 focuses on migrants and refugees. There are over 65 million people displaced around the world.
 
The Pope calls us to welcome, protect, promote, and integrate migrants into our society: “Let us embrace all those fleeing from war and hunger, or forced by discrimination, poverty, and environmental degradation to leave their homelands.”
