We pray that the cries of our migrant brothers and sisters, victims of criminal trafficking, may be heard and heeded

Prayer

Lord Jesus Christ,
You who were a guest and a pilgrim in our midst.
You who ran away from violence,
looking for a safe refuge in Egypt.
Give us the grace to recognize you
in the faces of our brothers and sisters
forced to leave their homelands because of war
and the injustice of poverty and violence.
May your Holy Spirit touch our hearts and ears
so that we are not indifferent to the cry of these brothers and sisters of ours,
victims of criminal trafficking.
Convert the hearts of those who bring so much damage
to our brothers and sisters.
Our Father…

 

Offering Prayer

 

Father of Goodness, I know you’re with me.
Here I am on this new day.
Place my heart once more
next to the Heart of your Son Jesus,
who is giving himself for me and who comes to me in the Eucharist.
May your Holy Spirit make me your friend and apostle,
available for your mission of compassion.
I put in your hands my joys and hopes,
my works and sufferings, everything that I am and have,
in communion with my brothers and sisters of this worldwide prayer network.
With Mary I offer you my journey for the mission of the Church
and for the intentions of the Pope’s Worldwide Prayer Network for this month. Amen.

Proposals for the month

  • Start or continue to collaborate with institutions that welcome migrants and their families, through donations, volunteering, sharing these initiatives on social networks, etc.
  • Promote around you a positive and compassionate attitude towards migrants who are fleeing their homelands in search of peace and the opportunities of life, and who are victims of trafficking, understanding their sufferings, joining you from our hearts and promoting their good.
  • Seek ways to sensitize your community or parish about the situations of exploitation and trafficking that so many migrants are victims of, in order to facilitate, in this way, action at the social and political level to fight this evil.
