Welcoming the Stranger

All of us have witnessed and continue to witness the suffering of immigrants and refugees throughout the world. Surely their plight is a worthy intention for our prayers.

In the light of recent events, I wanted to recommend to you a column recently written by Bishop DiMarzio for The Tablet newspaper. The article, from the January 14, 2017 edition, is contained in this link: Encountering the Strangers Among Us

Bishop DiMarzio has a long record of experience on matters of immigration; his column offers many worthy insights for our prayer and reflection. — BISHOP PAUL R. SANCHEZ
