You shall not oppress or afflict a resident alien,
for you were once aliens residing in the land of Egypt.
You shall not wrong any widow or orphan.
If ever you wrong them and they cry out to me,
I will surely listen to their cry.
When I was a stranger, you welcomed me.
Jesus of Nazareth
Let us pray.
to whom no one is a stranger
and from whose loving care none is ever distant,
look with compassion on refugees and exiles,
on displaced persons and abandoned children.
Render justice to the oppressed
and rouse us to do what is right,

Through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son,
who lives and reigns with you
in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
one God for ever and ever. Amen.
Our Lady of Guadalupe, Mother of the Americas, pray for us.

Dear Students and Friends,
On Tuesday of this week our nation took part in a great exercise of our democracy through the popular election of a president and members of congress for the coming respective terms. With the mandate of the people, a new president has been elected, members of congress re-elected or newly elected, prompting us to now pray that God will bless and endow our new President and other political leaders with wisdom, right judgment, careful discernment and a passion for justice and liberty for all people. We must pray that the President and Congressional leaders will be committed to advancing the common good for the people of this nation and the world, and dedicated to protecting the dignity of each and every human life, whether they are Jewish, Christian or Muslim, Caucasian, Hispanic or African American, refugee or...
