Rifugiati: un'opportunità per crescere insieme Dichiarazione ecumenica congiunta in occasione della Giornata Mondiale del Rifugiato 2017

Nella Bibbia cristiana leggiamo di due uomini, Pietro e Cornelio, in tutto divisi dalla cultura e dalla fede religiosa, che nel conoscersi scoprono una verità sul comune volere di Dio per entrambi che nessuno dei due aveva colto fino a quel momento. Imparano infatti che lo Spirito Santo abbatte muri che dividono e unisce quanti potrebbero pensare di non avere nulla in comune.

In tutto il mondo, donne, uomini e bambini sono costretti da violenze, persecuzioni, catastrofi naturali e provocate dall'uomo, da carestie e altri fattori ad abbandonare le proprie terre di origine. Il desiderio di fuggire dalle sofferenze è più forte delle barriere innalzate per bloccare loro la strada. L'opposizione di alcuni paesi nei confronti della migrazione degli sfollati con la forza non impedisce a chi è esposto a intollerabili sofferenze di abbandonare la propria casa.
