Ideas and experiences from our church members
I read an article this morning about the immigrants walking to the U.S. from Central America, passing through Mexico.
We had a wonderful hymn on Wednesday, #419, that caught my eye in prayer for children of the world. Looking at it again, I think the whole hymn is a good prayer for those seeking a better and safer life in a way that is appropriate and how they can feel loved and cared for, with good food, clothing, and shelter, wherever God leads them to be. Divine Love, God, loves each and everyone one of them dearly, and those who they encounter can be tender and kind to each one of them as they find their way to their right home.
Here are the words:
O Love whose perfect path is known
To all who walk the ways of God,
Whose mysteries are so clearly shown
To pilgrims with the gospel shod;
Thy radiance is so pure, so free,
So beautiful and swift to bless,
That by reflection constantly
We manifest Thy tenderness:
And every sacred shrine shall burn
With flames of Truth divinely bright,
And every weary child shall turn
In gratitude toward Thee, the Light.
