ABSTRACT
The problem of emigration and refugees is constantly present in the history of mankind. It is also present in the teaching of the Catholic Church. Both in history and in the present, the Church preached the Gospel message calling Christians to see Christ in every person, even in a stranger. The Church voice on emigration and refugees was heard both in the past and it is specially loudly heard now, in the present time when we experience the emigration crisis. The subject of this study is to present the Catholic Church teaching on the issues of emigrants and refugees. The purpose is to show the care and concern of the Christians and the Catholic Church about the fate of refugees and immigrants. The analysis of the biblical texts and the documents contained in the teaching of the Catholic Church concerning immigrants and refugees will be the basic method used in this research.
