Title: Pope: Rights of migrants trump national security concerns

VATICAN CITY (AP) -- Pope Francis urged countries on Monday to greatly improve their welcome to migrants and stop any collective expulsions, saying migrants' dignity and right to protection trumps national security concerns.

Francis' politically pointed message was made in view of the Catholic Church's 2018 world refugee day, celebrated Jan. 14. It comes amid mounting anti-immigrant sentiment in Europe following waves of migrant arrivals and Islamic extremist attacks.

In the message, Francis demanded governments welcome, protect, promote and integrate migrants, saying Jesus' message of love is rooted in welcoming the "rejected strangers of every age."

He demanded an increased and simplified process of granting humanitarian and temporary visas and rejected arbitrary and collective expulsions as "unsuitable."

He said the principle of ensuring each person's dignity "obliges us to always prioritize personal safety over national security."

Francis has made refugees a priority of his pontificate, making his first trip outside Rome in 2013 to the island of Lampedusa, ground zero in Europe's migration crisis. He has repeatedly spoken out for migrants' rights, demanded countries build "bridges not walls," and personally brought a dozen Syrian refugees back to Rome with him when he visited a Greek refugee camp in 2016.

Ignoring critics who say his calls are unrealistic and naive, Francis insisted in the new message that border guards must be trained to protect migrants and that each new arrival, regardless of legal status, must be guaranteed access to basic services beyond basic health care.

That extends to guaranteeing access to consulates, the justice system and the ability to open a bank account and survive financially, he said.

Unaccompanied minors, he said, require even greater protection, including guaranteeing them citizenship and access to schooling, as well as foster programs rather than detention centers.

He called for policies that support family reunification, employment opportunities and accelerated citizenship procedures to improve migrants' abilities to integrate in their new countries.

Acknowledging the tallness of the order, Francis said the church would do its part. But he said all people of good will, Christian and not, "are called to respond to the many challenges of contemporary migration with generosity, promptness, wisdom and foresight, each according to their own abilities."


Poster Comment:

Is this imitation, phony pope like all since Pope Piux XII yet another anti-Christ? It a certainty that, like those others since Vatican II he's not a Roman Catholic. Any acts by this dangerous communist, NWO type, should be ignored as his inspiration isn't Jesus Christ: it's Satan.

" Pope: Rights of migrants trump national security concerns "

OK Pope. You should set the example. Disband your Vatican guards, open all doors to the Vatican, take down Vatican walls, open up the Vatican Treasury, distribute all money to the "immigrants " and YOU feed them, house them, etc !

OK Pope ?

YOU FIRST !

If not, then STFU !!!

I'd bet he didn't allow them sanctuary in the Vatican.

So what he is doing is doing a Merkel and inviting these people in because he feels for them, Great pity he doesn't feel more for the circumstances that drove them out of their home countries, that is the work of Satan, and they believe the lie, that there is a better life in a place where they are welcome. Italy is flooded with "migrants", he doesn't even call them refugees. Perhaps he thinks these migrants will convert and fuel his declining church. If he wants to feed them, to cloth them to accommodate them then he should use the wealth of the church to do so on church property. Better still he should use the wealth of the church to improve circumstances in the home countries. I'm betting the thought hasn't crossed his mind

The Sedevacantists are 100% right!

There has been no legitimate pope since Pius XII and a completely new religion invented after Vatican II.

The Vatican loyalists will always say that the pope with his magical superpowers of loosing and binding which God is forced to adhere to, no matter what, means that the pope can in fact establish an entirely new religion whenever he wants. And God will obey the pope.

Of course, we ornery Prots will point out that this is classic popery, perhaps verging into outright sarcasm.

COOL! Somebody should start collecting money for train and bus tickets to Vatican City for Europe's recent flood of migrants. The Catholic Church has plenty of money to feed,clothe,and shelter them. After all,that's why they ask for donations,right?

BTW,for any of you would might not be aware of this,Vatican City is considered to be an independent nation within Italy,and they have Ambassadors (Cardinals) all over the world.

In other words,let them put their donated money where their mouths are.

In the entire history of the world,the only nations that had to build walls to keep their own citizens from leaving were those with leftist governments.

Not true. Jesus was the first Communist of record.

You are attempting to be sneaky, but a person with a modicum of intelligence and faith in the Almighty quickly discovers that you are totally full of shit!

You either have not read the Communist Manifesto, or if you have then you know that God is against totalitarianism, wholesale murder and citizens becoming members of a state filled with misery and Satan!

At least you make a bit more sense than you did below.

I am a Traditional Catholic who believes that subsequent to Vatican II the Church headquartered in the city-state is null and void. A new religion has been formed so, therefore, it is no longer the church Jesus Christ left behind to remain until the Second Coming.

That is the official position of the Catholic church.

It has to do with the doctrines of loosing and binding. Whatever the pope binds or looses on earth, God must honor.

The pope does not serve God. God serves the pope. No matter what window dressing mackerel snappers try to put on it.

It has to do with the doctrines of loosing and binding. Whatever the pope binds or looses on earth, God must honor.

A fair assessment as Cardinal Manning and Cardinal Newman (giants of Roman Catholic theology) make it clear:

"It was the charge of the Reformers that the Catholic doctrines were not primitive, and their pretension was to revert to antiquity. But the appeal to antiquity is both a treason and a heresy. It is a treason because it rejects the Divine voice of the Church at this hour, and a heresy because it denies that voice to be Divine....The only Divine evidence to us of what was primitive is the witness and voice of the Church at this hour." — Most Rev. Dr. Henry Edward Cardinal Manning, Lord Archbishop of Westminster, The Temporal Mission of the Holy Ghost: Or Reason and Revelation (New York: J.P. Kenedy & Sons, originally written 1865, pp. 227,28

"in all cases the immediate motive in the mind of a Catholic for his reception of them is, not that they are proved to him by Reason or by History, but because Revelation has declared them by means of that high ecclesiastical Magisterium which is their legitimate exponent.” — John Henry Newman, “A Letter Addressed to the Duke of Norfolk on Occasion of Mr. Gladstone's Recent Expostulation.” 8. The Vatican Council

An example of the above was addressed by none other than, then Cardinal Ratzinger (aka later Benedict XVI):

Before Mary's bodily Assumption into heaven was defined, all theological faculties in the world were consulted for their opinion. Our teachers' answer was emphatically negative . What here became evident was the one-sidedness, not only of the historical, but of the historicist method in theology. “Tradition” was identified with what could be proved on the basis of texts. Altaner , the patrologist from Wurzburg…had proven in a scientifically persuasive manner that the doctrine of Mary’s bodily Assumption into heaven was unknown before the 5C [AD] ; this doctrine, therefore, he argued, could not belong to the “apostolic tradition. And this was his conclusion, which my teachers at Munich shared.--- J. Ratzinger, Milestones (Ignatius, n.d.), 58-59

I don't think the Pope has been doing much binding and loosing in either Earth or heaven in many centuries otherwise things would be much different.

What Jesus told Peter is you have the power, my power, get on with it
