Pope Francis called for more immigrants to illegally enter countries across the world in commemoration of the World Day of Migrants and Refugees.

During the Pontiff's speech in Saint Peter's Square for his weekly Angelus address, he said:

"It is necessary to walk together, without prejudice and without fear, placing ourselves next to those who are most vulnerable: migrants, refugees, displaced persons, victims of trafficking, and the abandoned."

"We are called to build an increasingly inclusive world that excludes no one," he added.

The pope added that the Church of today is called to "widen her tent to embrace everyone," especially migrants.

We are "called to work together so that there will be no more walls that separate us, no longer others, but only a single 'we,' encompassing all of humanity," he declared.

The pope said we must "make every effort to break down the walls that separate us and, in acknowledging our profound interconnection, build bridges that foster a culture of encounter."

"Today's migration movements offer an opportunity for us to overcome our fears and let ourselves be enriched by the diversity of each person's gifts."

"Then, if we so desire, we can transform borders into privileged places of encounter, where the miracle of an ever wider 'we' can come about," he added.

"I join with all those in the various parts of the world who are celebrating this Day," Francis said Sunday.

The pope also signaled that the bronze monument in Saint Peter's Square was to commemorate migrants and refugees.

"Before leaving the square, I invite you to approach that monument there," he said, "and to dwell on the gaze of those people and to grasp in that gaze the hope that every migrant has today."

"We do not close the doors to their hope," he added.

The monument, titled "Angels Unawares," shows 140 migrants and is the first sculpture to be installed in the piazza in over 400 years.

In 2019, the pope said something similar, insisting "doors must be opened" to migrants and that it is a "Christian duty" for countries to open up their borders for mass immigration.

"Doors must be opened, not closed," Pope Francis said at the time.
