It is not just about migrants. It’s also about our humanity.

It is not just about migrants. It’s also about our humanity.

The communication campaign of the Migrants and Refugees Section is preparing for the 105th World Day of Migrants and Refugees (WDMR), which will be celebrated on Sunday 29 September 2019. The theme chosen by the Holy Father for the 2019 WDMR is “It is not just about migrants”.

The campaign offers monthly reflections and brief information materials in multimedia formats to promote pastoral activities on the theme of the WDMR. Each month a different sub-theme is developed with distinctive texts and images.

The first two sub-themes were It’s also about our fears” and “It’s also about charity”. The new sub-theme is “It’s also about our humanity”.

You will find the theme and its sub-themes beautifully developed in the Message of the Holy Father for the WDMR, together with all the other materials that may be downloaded, used and shared freely from our WDMR2019 page.

M&R encourages the translation of the campaign materials into local languages to make them fully accessible to your people and to facilitate our work in support of the most vulnerable among our brothers and sisters. For human dignity needs to be protected, indeed promoted, wherever it is most at risk. This is what vulnerable people on the move remind us of, this is the human integrity to which they challenge everyone, especially the followers of Christ.
