"BE MERCIFUL EVEN AS YOUR FATHER IS MERCIFUL." (LUKE 6:36)
For the month of June the Corporal work of Mercy is: Welcome the Stranger.
To welcome the stranger means to accept those who come from other places into our communities, our parishes, and our homes even as we would welcome Christ. To welcome means to regard those who arrive among us with the dignity we owe to the human person, rather than with suspicion; to invite them to integrate into the community and to become participants in its life, and not just observers. In that regard, we are reminded that welcoming immigrants is the tradition of our great nation built with people of many nations seeking to make a life and home here.
“No stranger lodged in the street, for I opened my door to wayfarers.“ - Job 31:3
