CATHOLIC NON-VIOLENT ACTION On September 4th, I shared in a hope-filled experience with over 400 people in a Catholic Non-Violent Action for Immigrant Children in Newark, New Jersey. The call throughout the event was to end the abuse, trauma, and detention of migrant children and was echoed in prayer, ritual, and a call to action by Catholic leaders. Cardinal Joseph Tobin, Archbishop of Newark, accompanied the group through the whole experience from St. Mary’s Church, through the streets of Newark, to the Federal ICE office.
JUSTICE, PEACE, INTEGRITY OF CREATION… Please see the Bridges attachment with a reflection and prayer for the Season of Creation. LOOKING AHEAD... The World Day of Migrants and Refugees (WDMR), on 29 September 2019, will soon be here. On this occasion, Pope Francis will celebrate a Mass in Rome, and asks us to join him with the slogan “It is not just about migrants”. This theme has been developed into the sub-theme “it is about the whole person and all people”.
