January 27, 2020 Justice Updates

  • The Interfaith Immigration Coalition (IIC), which includes the Sisters of Mercy of the Americas, has called for a national day of prayer and action on behalf of migrants on Wednesday, January 29, 2020. A year ago, on January 29, 2019, the first migrants were sent back to Mexico under the Trump administration’s Migrant Protection Protocols, also known as Remain in Mexico.

Please consider taking part in this day in any way you can and encourage others to do so. Here are links to resources from the IIC:

The Prayer Service and some resource materials are also attached.

  • Pope Francis marked the 75 Anniversary of the Liberation of Auschwitz-Birkenau during his Sunday address. He advised his audience that remembering this tragedy is a duty, and called for all to say “Never again.” Click here for more.

  1. Thank you, dear sisters, for your work and for your vocation. As a Mexican- Lebanese-Italian Catholic that had the opportunity to live in Mexico, Germany, India and now in Texas, I am astonished and petrified about the horrible goodies way most Texans and many Americans think and speak of non white immigrants, of foreigners and of Muslims. I have raised my children in a way that they love and fear to offend God, and they love and engage for the needy, the poor, the rejected. As a family we are astonished about the complicit silence in the parishes of our dioceses. Thankfully we have found loving and caring Bishops (all far from our diocese) that truly live and act accordingly to the Gospel and lovingly follow what mother Church asks us to do. Yesterday was specially a sad day remembering the Stay In Mexico deal. I’m glad I found your website, I think His wants me to recover my joy in him and to work for the migrant, the inmates and those in need learning from your testimony. I feel less down, less burdened now, although the burden still weights. May the Virgin Mary always protect you and embrace you
