A Prayer For Victims Of Human Trafficking

The U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops’ (USCCB) Committee on Migration has designated February 8th as an annual day of prayer for survivors and victims of human trafficking.  On this day, let each of us pray for the emotional, physical and spiritual healing of victims, and make a personal commitment to work against human trafficking.

A Prayer for the End of Human Trafficking
As shared by the Sisters of Charity of Saint Elizabeth, Convent Station, N.J.

God of freedom, beauty and truth
we believe that your deepest desire,
your most powerful energy,
is that all creation might know abundant life.

We raise our voices in anguished prayer
for our sisters and brothers,
women and girls, men and boys,
who are modern day slaves;
They are your beloved daughters and sons,
exploited sexually or forced to work
because of human violence and greed.

Fill us with your holy anger and your sacred passion
that those who are trafficked might know healing and justice;
that traffickers will come to repentance and conversion;
that all of us might live in such a way
that others are not made to pay the price
for our comfort and convenience.

Hasten the coming of the day when all people
and our precious Earth itself
will be treated, not as a commodity,
but as radiant images of your freedom, beauty and truth.
Amen. May it be so.

With Lent quickly approaching, let’s talk about more ways to prepare for Lent! Giving up something for Lent is traditionally what most of us tend to do. Because that’s what we always did in the past when we were younger, right? Indeed, we tend to do what’s familiar. With this in mind, why not challenge ourselves to do something different but extremely meaningful? Something that will make this the most meaningful Lent ever?

Prepare for Lent!
