A Prayer for Refugees and Immigrants

Refugees Sicily

God of abundant mercy, come to the aid of all refugees and immigrants in our world. Protect them from violence and harm. May all nations and peoples be inspired to greet them with dignity and compassion, for they are the Dear Neighbor to be served and loved without distinction. Help each of us search for ways to reach out to these suffering and desperate people. May we always be mindful that in unity with you, we are all one body, though many parts.   We ask this in the name of Jesus, your son and the Holy Spirit who dwells with you for ever.

Amen.
