Immigration

Pope Francis recently mentioned about immigration. Does Catholic Church promote open boarder policy? Of course not. It is not the place for Catholic Church to formulate policies or enforce them. It is the job of the government to protect its citizens. It is the politics of the land that needs to address the chaos.

We as a church will help every person who is in dire need of existence. We will cloth the naked, feed the hungry, heal the broken, educate and protect the children who have become our neighbors. We do not look at them as legal or illegal, citizens or aliens, but simply as children of God.

As citizens of our country let us choose the right people to represent us who can bring the change we need in the immigration policies.

Just a thought:  An example: It is not enough that we take refugees from Syria but hold Syria responsible for not protecting its citizens.

  1. Catechism of the Catholic Church #1932 The duty of making oneself a neighbor to others and actively serving them becomes even more urgent when it involves the disadvantaged, in whatever area this may be. “As you did it to one of the least of these my brethren, you did it to me.”38 And the king will say to them in reply, ‘Amen, I say to you, whatever you did for one of these least brothers of mine, you did for me.’ Matthew 25:40

  2. How can we encourage each other to ‘love the sinner, but hate the sin’? How can we help each other differentiate between an illegal act and the person responsible for the illegal act?

    1. My thought is that the sin of conducting an illegal act first lies with the politicians who condone and encourage the act. They should be held responsible above all others. Especially since their decisions are made for personal gain and not for the good of our country.
