“To welcome, protect, promote and integrate those who are forced to migrate to escape wars and violence or to seek better living
 conditions. Solidarity and sharing that derive from being all part of the one human family - and therefore also having the same rights to the goods of the earth - are a path to peace”. – Pope Francis
