Prayer to End Human Trafficking
Lord Jesus you taught us the value of human life, the dignity of every person,
You said, like Isaiah, you came to bring good news to the poor,
To set captives free,
To lift up the oppressed,
To give sight to the blind,
May we not be blind but inspired by your words and action,
to support the children, and free all the captured slaves,
the victims of the people traders, bought and sold as objects by the
human traffickers, may we set them free and end the scourge of human trafficking in your name.
Lord Jesus May your spirit be upon us.
by Father Shay Cullen Profiles in Catholicism
A Quote to Remember
“A sense of deep communion with the rest of nature cannot be real if our hearts lack tenderness, compassion and concern for our fellow human beings. It is clearly inconsistent to combat trafficking in endangered species while remaining completely indifferent to human trafficking, unconcerned about the poor, or undertaking to destroy another human being deemed unwanted.”
by Pope Francis
