SOCIAL JUSTICE FOOD FOR THOUGHT
Refugees: Pray regularly for refugees and asylum seekers: Pope Francis showed us how deeply he is touched by the plight of asylum seekers. We can follow his example by remembering those displaced around the world in our daily prayers, with family and friends, and by encouraging our parishes to include them in the Prayers of the Faithful at Mass.
