"The four actions indicated by the Pope (welcome, protect, promote, integrate) concluded the Sixth International Migration and Peace Forum and highlighted the answer that the entire planet must give to migration issues. Only in this way one is able to integrate and live in a peaceful world".
This is what was said in a statement sent to Fides, by
Sister Neusa de Fátima Mariano, Superior General of the Missionary
Sisters of St. Charles Borromeo/Scalabrinians at the conclusion of the
sixth International Forum "Migration and Peace" which was held in Rome.
"To aim at housing policies, language learning, training and
implementation of socio-cultural activities is the basis of a concrete
work and the realization of policies initiated by our founder Giovanni
Battista Scalabrini and by the co-founders Giuseppe and Assunta
Marchetti - adds Sister Neusa de Fátima Mariano.
The creation of a
network is essential, this is what emerged from the Forum.
Institutions, civil society, must work for a positive and virtuous
action. Institutions must ensure, at the same time, the 'right not to
emigrate', creating projects to ensure that the community is not
dismembered, devastated by all sorts of crises.
Pope Francis’ support
shows that migration is top priority, because this is dictated by other
factors that have an affect in human history".
