Mary, our Mother and our Lady of Guadalupe, we come to you as migrants and pilgrims, passing briefly through this world, as we journey to our true home in heaven. Show us the Way.
You were once a migrant too. Guide us along safe paths, protect us from evil, and free us from all fear. Show us the Way.
Teach us to welcome the strangers among us - immigrants, migrants, refugees, people on the move -- all sisters and brothers on the journey. Show us the Way.
Help us to seek justice for the oppressed, to bring comfort to the afflicted, and to offer hope and healing to all those we meet on the journey. Show us the Way.
Help us to recognize that the only path to your Son is the way of justice. Strengthen us to make straight this way before him. Show us the Way.
Open our hearts and minds to the suffering of victims of human trafficking, children held in detention, and other vulnerable persons in need of our hope and help in their time of struggle. Amen.
