    Pope: Shun discrimination against, welcome migrants

    By Cindy Wooden



    VATICAN CITY (CNS) -- Pope Benedict XVI called on Christians to shun all forms of discrimination and welcome the migrants in their midst, in marking the Vatican's celebration of World Day for Migrants and Refugees Jan. 15.

    The pope called on people to recognize the benefits of migration and overcome "every form of discrimination, injustice and disdain for the human person, because each person is an image of God."

    Addressing visitors in St. Peter's Square after reciting the midday Angelus prayer, the pope said the movement of people is a "sign of the times."

    While the movement may be voluntary or forced, legal or clandestine, motivated by work or study, Pope Benedict said, the arrival of newcomers from far away can lead to a knowledge of and respect for ethnic and cultural differences.

    Pope Benedict expressed hope that Catholics would help their communities overcome "difficulties of acceptance and integration" as they welcome migrants and refugees.

    In his main Angelus talk, Pope Benedict focused on the Sunday Gospel reading in which Jesus invites Andrew and John to follow him, telling them, "Come and see."

    The pope said Jesus' words offer guidance for the new year, which should be "a time in which we renew our spiritual journey with Jesus in the joy of seeking him and finding him always."

    "The truest joy" people can have comes from meeting, following, knowing and loving Jesus, the pope said.

    A constantly renewed effort to know and love Jesus more deeply is necessary not because Jesus changes -- "Christ is the same yesterday, today and always" -- but because "we, our world and history are never the same," he said

    Greeting various groups at the end of the Angelus address, Pope Benedict offered words of encouragement to Catholic schools in Rome.

    He urged school officials, teachers, parents and students "to continue the commitment to holistic education, which works to unite quality instruction and the Christian understanding of the person and of society."

    Vatican City is surrounded by walls both literally and figuratively. There is no place in a society of free people to listen to scorn from a hypocritical zealot. I wonder what would happen if you scaled the Vaticans walls? Or decided to live there as a migrant?

    Jesus also said to obey the laws.

    Commandments 6-10:

    SIX: 'You shall not murder.'

    SEVEN: 'You shall not commit adultery.'

    EIGHT: 'You shall not steal.'

    NINE: 'You shall not bear false witness against your neighbor.'

    TEN: 'You shall not covet your neighbor's house; you shall not covet your neighbor's wife, nor his male servant, nor his female servant, nor his ox, nor his donkey, nor anything that is your neighbor's.'

    I could go on and on and on.

    We welcome immigrants who follow the laws in entering and being in this country. We do NOT welcome people who circumvent and violate our laws, what country would?

    Are we suppose to except violents gangs, drugs, human trafficking, wage suppression, job losses, no assimilation, law breaking, increased taxes, and what about the VIOLENCE AND DISCRIMINATION AND HATRED THESE LAWBREAKERS HAVE FOR AMERICANS?

    They do not like us and have been violent and have killed Americans!

    Why is this not addressed? Why isn't the blame put on the Mexican and South American, Indian, Russian, Chinese, Irish, Middle East elites and governments? They should be speaking out against the injustices of these countries! We are not the cause of their misery!

    How about they all go to Rome.

    Is this the same Pope who wanted to give amnesty to pedophile priests?
