Prayer for all Migrants, to Saint Joseph, persecuted and courageous migrant

by Angel Valdez

Saint Joseph,
you who have experienced the suffering of those who must flee
you who were forced to flee
to save the lives of those dearest to you,
protect all those who flee because of war,
hatred, hunger.
Support them in their difficulties,
Strengthen them in hope, and let them find welcome and solidarity.
Guide their steps and open the hearts of those who can help them. Amen.

(Pope Francis, Catechesis on Saint Joseph, December 29, 2021).
