Day 39: Solace of Migrants, Pray for Us!

This is the newest title in the Litany of Our Lady, added by Pope Francis, the Friend and Protector of Migrants, Immigrants, and Refugees. There are currently 250MM migrants in the world. They come from all over, and go all over, but the most popular destination is the United States of America. A migrant family faces uncertainty: What does the future hold? Where will we live? What will we eat? Will we be safe? Will we ever return?  What all migrants have in common is that they are seeking a better place, a better life, a safe harbor for their family just like Jesus, Mary, and Joseph as they fled Bethlehem and headed to a new a hidden life in Egypt. Mary knew that God would take care of them. And the migrant who turns to Our Lady when in need will be truly blessed.

Solace of migrants, pray for the Church and the Nation.

On Fridays we pray the Sorrowful Mysteries.
