People are gifts from God, and we adults are the caregivers, especially in time of need. We know that some people in Middle America are living in a time of violence and fear of death. Part of it is related to gangs and drugs. Gangs prey on the people and demand that children and youths join them in order to do the work of moving drugs. The alternative is to move to a place where there could be security and protection from the violence that replaces the Rule of the Law.

Some have journeyed to the United States hoping to explain their dilemma. They know that their situation is a time for decisions. They also know that the United States has signed on the commitment of the United Nations to give refugees, fleeing fearfully the presence of violence, an opportunity to tell their story and seek asylum.

The Attorney General, Mr. Sessions, refused to offer time to tell their stories and hopefully be offered refuge. He declared that anyone crossing the border will be prosecuted and if they are traveling with children, that the children will be separate from their parents.

Now they, the government, cannot locate where at least 1,500 of the separated children are. Of course, that means that they don’t know if the children are safe and being cared for properly.

We pray that the government will return to the United Nations’ pledge of asylum when needed.
God Bless, Fr. Michael, O.S.A.

We, the church of Saint Patrick, in the community of North Park,
of the Roman Catholic Diocese and City of San Diego,
declare this to be our primary mission:
to come together to celebrate the Eucharist,
hear God’s word proclaimed,
give praise and thanksgiving to God,
and develop a personal relationship with Jesus Christ.
We believe that by freely sharing our faith, talents, and treasures,
we discover Christ’s presence among us and bring Him to others.
We have a strong desire to give and receive love, service, peace, support,
and fellowship, within our families, our parish, our community, and the world.
Open to the power of the Holy Spirit, we pursue this mission faithfully and lovingly.
