Vatican City, Nov 12, 2020 / 12:00 pm (CNA).- Pope Francis has urged Catholics to care for people fleeing “the viruses of injustice, violence and war,” in a message marking the 40th anniversary of the Jesuit Refugee Service. 

In a letter posted on the JRS website Nov. 12, the pope wrote that the coronavirus pandemic had shown that all human beings were “in the same boat.”

“Indeed, all too many people in today’s world are forced literally to cling to rafts and dinghies in an attempt to seek refuge from the viruses of injustice, violence and war,” the pope said in a message to JRS International Director Fr. Thomas H. Smolich, S.J.
