Pope Francis' theme for the World Day of Migrants and Refugees 2016 is 'Migrants and Refugees Challenge Us. The Response of the Gospel of Mercy'. In today's feature podcast, we have a conversation about refugees with Fr Peter Smith, the Promoter of the Justice and Peace Office for the Archdiocese of Sydney.

Fr Peter speaks of the experience of being a refugee based on the stories he's been told, the struggles they face, the practical ways we can help as a community, and how Pope Francis' example leads the way.
