The Child Jesus and his family then as now experienced forced displacement.
The causes then as now remain largely socio-political, economic and religious
The Mediterranean region and neighbouring countries then as now remains troubled
Innocence then as now suffers injustice

The Inn then as now is said to be full
The forcibly displaced then as now cry out for protection
Happily hospitality then as now ushers the forcibly displaced in
Injustice diminishes through generosity

Hope then as now remains aflame!
Sharing then as now inspires confidence
Solidarity then as now alleviates suffering
LOVE remains truly with us and invites us to love.
