The President of Caritas Internationalis, Cardinal Tagle, Archbishop of Manila, on a recent visit to the Holy Land, addressed one of Pope Francis’ favorite topics: the migrants.
“Migrants are our brothers and sisters seeking a better life far from poverty, hunger, and war.” This is the tweet sent by Pope Francis a few days ago.
In Israel, the number of immigrants and refugees has increased. It is estimated that only the Filipino community, according to the embassy, reach nearly 31,000 immigrants, concentrated in the cities of Tel Aviv, Jerusalem and Haifa.
For those people who left their own country, the Land of Jesus is a place to start over.
