Holy Father: Privilege of Wealthy Birth Means Duty to Help Others

After meeting with migrants last week, Pope Francis told Catholics born in wealthy countries that they had a duty to serve those on the move. “Privilege is a debt,” he said, and acknowledged that it could be challenging to leave one’s comfort zone and take action. “Do not be afraid; go forth.”
