"The LORD is my shepherd; I shall not want. He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters. He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name's sake. ~Psalm 23:1-3"
World Day of the Sick, February 11, 2015 MESSAGE OF HIS HOLINESS POPE FRANCIS FOR THE 23rd WORLD DAY OF THE SICK 2015
Remember: Sister Dorothy Mae Stang, S.N.D., (7 July 1931 – 12 February 2005) was an American-born, Brazilian member of the Congregation of the Sisters of Notre Dame de Namur. She was murdered in Anapu, a city in the state of Pará, in the Amazon Basin of Brazil. Stang had been outspoken in her efforts on behalf of the poor and the environment, and had previously received death threats from loggers and land owners.

Human Trafficking Action - House Passes Bills, Church Marks First International Day of Prayer

Congress has taken action early this session to address trafficking issues. Last week, the House passed a series of 12 bills that address human trafficking through varying degrees and methods, primarily focusing on victims of sex trafficking. These bills still need to go through the Senate.

Sunday, February 8, the feast day of St. Josephine Bakhita, will be the first International Day of Prayer and Awareness Against Human Trafficking. A special mass will be held in the Basilica of the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception in Washington, D.C. and parishes and communities across the country are encouraged to organize their own local events.

Convened by the U.S. Catholic Conference of Bishops has crafted a set of “New Years’ Resolutions Against Human Trafficking,”a list of actions related to trafficking for the public to commit to as 2015 New Years’ resolutions. It's not too late! We invite you to commit to the resolutions, share them with your networks, and use #SlavesNoMore on social media to raise awareness for the issue of human trafficking and what your agencies and communities are doing to respond.
