Full Product Description

"For I was a stranger, and you welcomed me," Jesus will say to the righteous.

These words of Jesus in Matthew chapter 25 challenge us to see the weary Jesus in the stranger, the migrant, and the refugee. Identifying himself as someone who is a stranger to others, Jesus orients our eyes toward offering gracious welcome to the stranger.

This short book shares Pope Francis's insight on the diffcult path laid before migrants and refugees who are forced to leave their own country for the sake of survival. The pope's speeches focus on the modern tragedies and human dramas of migration, the journey itself, and the integration of families and individuals into new societies and cultures. In an appeal to all, the pope's narrative brings the principle of compassion and solidarity toward the stranger to the forefront of Christian charity.
