This is Bishop Michael Burbidge of the Catholic Diocese of Arlington. This coming Sunday we celebrate the World Day of Migrants and Refugees. The theme for this year is “Towards an Ever Wider ‘We’”. What a profound reminder for all of us! In a time when we live in a “me” society we must always remember the moral imperative to assist, to embrace, and in fact, to reach out to our brothers and sisters in need, who have come to our country with the hope of a better life for their families and loved ones. We cannot be indifferent. We cannot remain insensitive.  Indeed we must live the message of Pope Francis that, “We are called to dream together, fearlessly, as a single human family, as companions on the same journey, as sons and daughters of the same earth that is our common home, sisters and brothers all.”
