"Heart of God, full of mercy, watch over our sister and brother immigrants. Protect them from harm even as they suffer mistreatment and humiliations on their way. Break open our hearts to embrace them and the gift they are to our communities. Heart of God, full of compassion, give our brothers and sisters in Congress the gift of compassion. Open their eyes to the pain and longing of those affected by their decisions. Give them the wisdom as they struggle to repair our unjust immigration system. Break open their hearts to embrace the dreams of our immigrant parents, siblings, and friends. Heart of God, full of love, we give you glory for all the blessings you have given us. Help us to share those blessings with others. Break open our hearts that we might embrace the challenge to build a land, a nation, a community where all are welcome."
