Principle 15 – Love the Stranger

The fifteenth guiding principle of our document Love the Stranger


We urge the fulfilment of obligations under international frameworks protecting migrants and refugees, such as the Refugee Convention, the Convention on the Rights of the Child, the Global Compact on Refugees, and the Global Compact for Safe, Orderly and Regular Migration.

Intercessory Prayer

We pray for international cooperation to be upheld and strengthened wherever possible
so that people on the move will always receive the protection of the law and justice
may we always hold before our eyes your love o Lord for each and every traveller
and receive with compassion those who seek protection in this country
Lord in your mercy, hear our prayer.
