14 February 2021 | Angelus


Saint Peter's Square

After the Angelus the Holy Father said:

Dear brothers and sisters, I always look with gratitude on the dedication of those who collaborate in favour of migrants. I thank all of you for what you do for migrants. Today in particular, I join the Bishops of Colombia in expressing gratitude to the Colombian authorities for implementing the temporary protection statute for Venezuelan migrants present in that country, fostering welcoming, protecting and integrating. This is not being done by a super wealthy, developed country… No: this is being done by a country that has many problems of development, of poverty and of peace, almost 70 years of guerrilla warfare… But with this problem they have had the courage to look at those migrants and to create this statute. Thank you to Colombia. Thank you! […]
