A Stranger and You Welcomed Me –
Week 2 Lenten Reflection
During the Season of Lent, we ask you to join us every Monday as we reflect on recent words of Pope Francis related to the challenges of contemporary immigration. From A Stranger and You Welcomed Me we are using the themes to welcome, to protect, to promote and to integrate, pondering what Jesus would do.
To Protect: Protecting can best be understood as a series of steps intended to defend the rights and dignity of migrants and refugees, independent of their legal status. As we learn more about situations on our southern border, are work opportunities being offered as migrants and refugees are assimilated into a community? What about health care? To learn how we can improve our protecting of families contact a city where a recent migrant or refugee family has settled. Have they found meaningful work? Do they have access to health care? See if you can assist with an immediate need that they have. READ MORE

In our current day what might Heaven require of us? How do/might we make others feel at ‘home’? At our table? In our space? In our conversations? In our hearts?
