ICMC Secretary General Msgr. Robert J. Vitillo discusses Pope Francis' call for governments to come to the help of migrants in North Africa and the suffering they and their families experience. He also addresses the response of European and African governments and how it could be improved, as well as ICMC efforts to assist migrants and refugees.
In his Christmas message this year, ICMC's Secretary General, Msgr. Robert J. Vitillo, reminds us that the Holy Family was made up of internally displaced persons, who later became full-fledged refugees when Herod threatened the life of the Holy Child. Today, more than 100 million displaced people suffer the challenges Mary and Joseph did.
