On the occasion of the 107th World Day of Migrants and Refugees (WDMR), September 26th, 2021, Pope Francis has chosen as the theme for this day “Towards an ever wider ‘we’.” “An appeal to build a universal “we” — may this be achieved first and foremost within the Church, called upon to create communion within diversity.”

In Pope Francis’ WDMR statement, he writes: “Today’s migration movements offer an opportunity for us to overcome our fears and let ourselves be enriched by the diversity of each person’s gifts. Then, if we so desire, we can transform borders into privileged places of encounter, where the miracle of an ever wider ‘we’ can come about.”
