Pax Christi International and Pax Christi France have just published a message on the recent deaths of more migrants attempting to cross the English channel from France to the United Kingdom. Over the night of 24 November at least 27 people died while trying to cross the icy waters in unsafe vessels. We pray for those who have lost their lives in these tragedies and for all migrants facing such extreme dangers and uncertainty. We call on decision makers across Europe to act generously and hospitability to those seeking refuge.
