Universal: Countries Receiving Refugees
That the countries which take in a great number of displaced persons and refugees may find support for their efforts which show solidarity.
Evangelization: Collaboration of Priests and Laity
That within parishes, priests and lay people may collaborate in service to the community without giving in to the temptation of discouragement.
We live in a world at war, made many times in your name.
Because of this disobedience to your law,
Thousands of people are forced to flee,
To defend one’s life and that of their families.
Open the hearts of all,
Let us welcome refugees
And give them the conditions to rebuild their lives.
This month also ask that within parishes, priests and lay people may collaborate in service to the community without giving in to the temptation of discouragement.
Our Father, Hail Mary, Glory Be …
Resolutions for this month:
- I will support institutions that host refugees in my country.
- I will offer assistance to the pastor or community leader to help in whatever is needed most.
- I will help my community create positive attitudes, without yielding to slander, division or dis-couragement.
