It has been one of the most consistent themes of his papacy so far, and one of the most pressing, as Europe and the world face refugee crisis after crisis. He told worshippers gathered around the Nativity scene in St Peter’s Square that refugees fleeing conflict were seeking peace. “For this peace, which is the right of all, many of them are willing to risk their lives in a journey that, in most cases, is long and dangerous, facing trials and suffering,” he said.
