Let us not forget the suffering of the other
Let us not forget to feel for the suffering of the people on the run…on trains, trucks, boats
Let us not forget the pain of separation for families
Let us not forget that running from one’s country can bring untimely death
Let us not forget that peace and justice are fragile, and we need strength and faith to keep on building them
Let us remember the families who cannot leave their country, or run to safety
Let us remember to put ourselves
in the shoes of the child who is cold, crying, who lost his toys, his bicycle, his father
Let us not forget to trust in God, in the Eucharist and in salvation for all of us
Let us remember hope
Let us pray for those suffering, afraid, lonely
Let us pray to get generous, kind, and that our heart remains open to the other
Let us pray that our trust and faith never leave us
