Do you know much about the plight of refugees-those who did not have a choice , but were forced to leave home? Use this question and answer guide to learn more. 


"The more prosperous nations are obliged, to the extent they are able, to welcome the foreigner in search of the security and means of livelihood which he cannot find in his country of origin. Public authorities should see to it that the natural right is respected that places a guest under the protection of those who receive him." (Catechism of the Catholic Church, no. 2241)


Some of the most vulnerable migrants are children. Pray for immigrant children today.
