Let us reflect and pray the way of the cross together with migrants and displaced persons.

This is a time to raise our voices for those who, like Christ, have been banished and crucified with him, victims of human trafficking, or those who while trying to defend their rights, have been violently attacked.

Let us keep in mind migrant people who have died, those who have lost a loved one along the way, those who have been scarred by violence and those who hope to live in peace with a heaven that protects them. United with migrant people we say:

Migrant footprints are those who are left behind along the way;

Migrant footprints are the steps of women, men, and children;

Migrant footprints point to dreams of a better and peaceful life;

Migrant footprints mark the path taken by other migrants;

Migrant footprints of those who flee from violence in their lands;

Migrant footprints of women violated by machismo.
