prayer for the migrant

Prayer for the Migrant, from the program at the conclusion of the pilgrimage to San Xavier du Bac Saturday 31 October 2015 organized by Derechos Humanos to remember those who have died crossing the desert in the past year:

Creator, full of love and mercy, I want to ask you for my migrant brothers and sisters. Have compassion and protect them, as they suffer mistreatment and humiliations on their journeys, they are labelled as dangerous, and marginalized for being foreigners.

Make them be respected and valued for their dignity. Touch with your goodness the many that see them pass. Care for their families until they return to their homes, not with broken hearts  but rather with hopes fulfilled. Let it be.
