(Message of the Pope Benedict VI on Refugee and Migrant Sunday reposted. Thanks to Zenith)
Dear Brothers and Sisters:This Sunday we observe the annual World Day of Migrants and Refugees. Therefore, I address to all men of good will and, in particular, to Christian communities, a special message dedicated to migrant families.We can contemplate the Holy Family of Nazareth, image of all families, as it reflects the image of God, guarded in the heart of every human family, even when it is weakened and at times disfigured by life’s trials.The Evangelist Mark recounts that, shortly after Jesus’ birth, St. Joseph was obliged to travel to , taking with him the child and its Mother, to flee from King Herod’s persecution (cf. Matthew 2:13-15).In the drama of the family of Nazareth we can perceive the painful condition of so many migrants, especially refugees, the exiled, the displaced and the persecuted. We recognize, in particular, the difficulties of the migrant family as such: the difficult conditions of life, the humiliations, inconveniences and fragility.In fact, the phenomenon of human mobility is very widespread and diversified. According to recent United Nations estimates, migrants impelled by financial reasons number almost 200 million; refugees number 9 million and international students some 2 million.To this great number of brothers and sisters must be added the internally displaced and irregular migrants, keeping in mind that each one of them has, in one way or another, a family. Therefore, it is important to care for migrants and their families through the help of specific legislative, juridical and administrative protections, as well as through a network of services, listening centers and structures of social and pastoral assistance.I hope that soon a balanced management will be established of the migratory flows and of human mobility in general, so that it will bring benefits to the whole human family, beginning with concrete measures that favor regular migration and family regrouping, paying special attention to women and minors.
Also in the huge field of international migrations, the human person must always be placed at the center. The just integration of families in social, economic and political systems is only achieved on one hand, by respecting the dignity of all immigrants and, on the other hand, by immigrants recognizing the values of the host society.Dear friends, the reality of migrations must never be seen just as a problem, but also and above all as a great resource for humanity’s progress. And the migrant family is especially a resource, if it is respected as such, and does not suffer irreparable lacerations, but is able to remain united or to regroup, and to fulfill its mission as the cradle of life and first sphere of a person’s education.Together we ask this of the Lord, through the intercession of the Virgin Mary, and of St. Francesca Xavier Cabrini, patroness of migrants.Pope Benedict VI[Translation by ZENIT]
and no one is ever far from your loving care.
In your kindness watch over refugees and asylum seekers,
those separated from their loved ones,
those who are lost,
and those who have been exiled from their homes.
Bring them safely to the place where they long to be,
and help us always to show your kindness to strangers and those in need.

If you can noticed at the far left of the picture is an old man in the wheelchair. People's faith could surely emulate others to be more faithful to christ.

They lead the songs as the community sings
I have to wear sunglasses because the sun rises facing my direction
Students are place together in the cooler area of the playground
The principal reads the book of Genesis on the occasion of the blessing of the school chapel
One thing is sure however, experience is really an asset that we must not take for granted.

The social dimension of the practiocvce of fasting and abstinence will spring by if charity follows.
(Sa abo ka nagmula sa abo ka magbabalik) From the dust you came from the dust you shall return
(Magsisi at talikdan ang iyong mga kasalanan at maniwala sa mabuting Ebanghelio) Repent and believe in the Gospel
Lord, protect us in our struggle against evil.
As we begin the discipline of Lent, make this day holy by our self-denial.
Grant this through our Lord Jesus Christ, Your Son, who lives and reigns with You and the Holy Spirit, one God, forever and ever.
FOR LENT 2007
