JUSTICE FOR IMMIGRANTS

 

 

Prayer for Migrants and Refugees

 

Teach us to recognize Jesus
In the migrant who labors to bring food to our tables.
In the refugee seeking protection from persecution, war and famine.
In the woman and child who are victims of human trafficking.
In the asylum seeker imprisoned without documents.
May all those who are far from their place of birth find
in the Church a home where no one is a stranger. Amen
