Watch: Are immigrants a blessing and a gift?

Archbishop Charles Scicluna answers questions by Fr Joe Borg

Tista' taqra bil- Malti.

The Pope’s recent encyclical letter Fratelli Tutti teaches that all humans are brothers and sisters. Does that mean that we have to consider immigrants as our brothers and sisters? Is this possible?

He says that “immigrants if they are helped to integrate, are a blessing, a source of enrichment and new gift that encourages a society to grow.”


Why does the Pope in this encyclical strongly criticises both neo-liberal capitalism and populism? What is wrong with trickle down economics?


On Friday at noon on Newsbook.com.mt Archbishop Charles Scicluna will answer questions by Fr Joe Borg about the encyclical and other topics during a special edition of Newsbook Q&A.

He will also answer questions about how how the epidemic affected his personal life. How did the Church react to the pandemic? Isthere anything that society can learn from the pandemic?
