A SNIPPET FROM THIS WEEK'S NEWSLETTER - Wealth of Humanity
Refugees and asylum seekers have a life story that speaks of the tragedies
of war, of conflicts that are all too often linked to international politics. Yet,
above all, every one bears a wealth of humanity and a religious sense,
treasures to welcome rather than to fear. Whether you are a Muslim or come
from different situations and countries, we mustn’t be afraid of differences!
Brotherhood enables us to discover that they are riches, gifts for everyone!
Let us live in brotherhood!
The place they come to ‘should be the place that makes it possible for them
to rediscover a human dimension and to begin to smile again. How often, however, they are forced to live in
distressing situations—at times degrading—and in no way are they able to start living a dignified life or to
think of a new future!
I thank all who not only give something of their time, but who also seek to enter into a relationship with
those who request asylum and with the refugees, recognising them as people and striving to find practical
answers to their needs. Always keep their hope alive! Help them to regain trust! Show them that with
acceptance and brotherhood it is possible to open a window on the future—or rather, more than a window,
a door, and even more—show them that they can also have a future!
