A Prayer for Our Country
We know, Lord, that you yourself are a migrant. You experienced the trials of the refugee, having fled as a child with your parents, Joseph and Mary, to Egypt. We know your special love for those with no other possession but one another, and you.
Move our hearts, Lord, and the hearts of our leaders to love them as you do, to love them with your love, to be your love for migrants at the doorway of our country.
Excerpted from Sorrow and Mourning Flee Away: Pastoral Letter on Migration by Bishop Mark J. Seitz, Diocese of El Paso
