For all those who see ‘home’ and all it means
Disappear behind them as they flee;
For all those who cannot see a home
In the days ahead of them;
For all who dwell in daily insecurity in
tents and camps;
For those who are weary and
without hope in the days ahead;
For all members of refugee families we pray.
May the image of the holy family fleeing
oppression stay with us as we pray for your
During the day, and each night as we are blessed
with returning to a home.
May we also be blessed with compassion for
those still weary, still uprooted,
still far from home. Amen
