A Land Richly Blessed . . . Immigrant Justice Prayer

As we reflect on "America the Beautiful" during these early days of July, this prayer from the U.S. Catholic Bishops speaks volumes:

A Prayer For Immigrant Justice

Blessed are You, Lord God,
King of all creation.
Through Your goodness, we live in this land
that You have so richly blessed.

Help us always to recognize our
Blessings come from You
and remind us to share them
with others, especially those who come
to us today from other lands.

Help us to be generous, just, and welcoming,
as You have been and are generous to us.
+  Amen  +
Prayer from the USCCB Justice for Immigrants website
