A PRAYER FOR THE END OF HUMAN TRAFFICKING

As shared by the Sisters of Charity of Saint Elizabeth, Convent Station, N.J.

God of freedom, beauty and truth

we believe that your deepest desire,

your most powerful energy,

is that all creation might know abundant life.

We raise our voices in anguished prayer

for our sisters and brothers,

women and girls, men and boys,

who are modern day slaves;

They are your beloved daughters and sons,

exploited sexually or forced to work

because of human violence and greed.

Fill us with your holy anger and your sacred passion

that those who are trafficked might know healing and justice;

that traffickers will come to repentance and conversion;

that all of us might live in such a way

that others are not made to pay the price

for our comfort and convenience.

Hasten the coming of the day when all people

and our precious Earth itself

will be treated, not as a commodity,

but as radiant images of your freedom, beauty and truth.

Amen. May it be so.


Slavery isn’t dead. Human trafficking, also known as trafficking in persons, is the illegal trade of people for exploitation or commercial gain. It is a form of modern-day slavery. On any given day, 40 million men, women, and children are victimized by human trafficking. The L.A. Freedom Walk is soon upon us this coming Saturday at 9 AM online! Service hours will be given for your participation.

WALK FOR FREEDOM

Social justice is an important element of Ramona's curriculum both inside and outside the classroom. In addition to the social justice course that is part of the Theology Department curriculum, each grade level has a unique social justice curricular focus.

 

Human Trafficking is one of the topics that is closely associated with the justice work of the Sisters of the Holy Names. Participating in this virtual event is a way for us to be educated about the issue and join our voices with others. Students will receive service hours for their participation. Click here to register now.
