July 30th is the international Day against human trafficking. Please remember in prayer the victims of this horrific crime. As we are all made in God’s likeness and image, let us be mindful that all life is sacred and precious. Pope Francis reminds us that “Catholics and all people of good will are urged to combat this “crime against humanity” which is an “open wound on the body of contemporary society, a scourge against the body of Christ.” Please include in prayer on this day the victims and families of human trafficking. May all our brothers and sisters in Christ be treated with dignity and respect that should be afforded to all God’s children.
