MIA Prayer Intention for the Coming Week: A Change of Heart
you have to understand,
that no one puts their children in a boat
unless the water is safer than the land
Since then we have seen in our papers and on our screens scenes of desperation unimaginable - unthinkable- since World War 11 as thousands of migrants, mostly from the Middle East and Northern Africa, seek safe harbour in Europe.
As EU interior and justice ministers prepare to meet in an emergency session in Brussels on 14 September for talks aimed at resolving the crisis, please continue to pray each day in the lead up to that meeting that all countries may accept their moral obligations to welcome the strangers in our midst.
