In 1990, I was born in Mexico into a staunchly Roman Catholic family. When I was twelve years old, my immediate family illegally migrated to California. We have lived there ever since.
Pope Francis’ message for the 101st World Day of Migrants and Refugees embraces the theme Church without frontiers, Mother to all. Celebrated on January 18, the World Day of Migrants and Refugees is an opportunity to reflect on our faith and the challenges facing migrants. Ultimately, the Holy Father urges a “universal network of cooperation, based on safeguarding the dignity and centrality of every human person.”
