Justice Reflections From Fr. Claude Mostowik

12th Sunday in Ordinary Time

June 20, 2021 World Refugee Day


A Moment of Grace

A Prayer for Refugees

God of our Wandering Ancestors,

Fleeing violence in their homeland,

Who then gathered up their hungry child

And fled into alien country.

(Pope Francis).
