Help for those at the border - updated

Bishop Michael Barber asks us to continue to pray and work toward a solution to stop the separation of children from their families at our borders. "I stand with my brother bishops in supporting and praying for the families suffering at the U.S - Mexico border," he said. "As Cardinal Dolan so eloquently told CNN, 'You can have secure and safe borders ... while still maintaining that grand American heritage of welcome of the immigrant and refugee.' The Catholic Church stands for the dignity of all human life.

We care for babies, whether they are in the womb or at the border. Mercy and justice must be given, together, to bring an end to this travesty."

On July1-2 a delegation of U.S. bishops visited the border in Brownsville, Texas. Their press conference is available here.

News stories and photos of their activities are available on the Catholic Voice Facebook page.

“I would like to invite all Catholics to call your Congressional Representatives and Senators today and ask them to do everything they can do to shine a light on this situation. Catholic Charities has already launched a website you can use for that purpose. Click here, send your message and stand in solidarity defending families.”
