MIA Prayer Intention: Responding to Victims of Human Trafficking

'God, rich in mercy, Catherine McAuley reminded us that “If we love You, we will undoubtedly love our neighbor also; they are as cause and effect.”

We pray that our love for You will give us the fortitude to work for an end to slavery for all our sisters and brothers. Give us the courage to touch the suffering flesh of Christ, revealed in the faces of those enslaved in our world today, so that like St Josephine Bakhita, all may be called fortunate. This we ask in your name. Amen'
