THE TWELFTH STATION
“For God delivers the needy when they call, the poor and those who have no helper. God has pity on the weak and the needy, and saves the lives of the needy.
From oppression and violence God redeems their life; and precious is their blood in God's sight.”
We must question the moral compass of anyone who perpetuates this humanitarian crisis through policy, action or words. We cannot permit children to be maltreated, imprisoned or die while seeking asylum in our country.
All people of conscience must come together to seek justice.
Creator, may we do what is called of us to ensure the respect and protection of the precious lives and hopes of our migrant sisters and brothers.
