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
displaced children;
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
