What guidelines did Pope John Paul II offer for preventing illegal immigration?
My sister read somewhere that Pope John Paul II gave some guidelines on how to help prevent illegal immigration. Do you know what she's referring to?
Perhaps she is referring to his message given July 25, 1995, entitled The Church and Illegal Immigration. The complete text of his talk is at www.ewtn.com. There’s also an article by Jimmy Akin on www.jimmyakin.org.

"I offer no sacrifice save to the One true God."
~ Maximus, martyr, saint, about A.D. 250, in answer to the demand of the civil authorities for sacrifice to the pagan gods; a test in common use as belief in a single Godhead was known to be definitive in the early Christian community; thus any Christian might be called on to seal with his blood his faith in the One God.
