Welcoming the stranger

The biblical injunction to welcome the stranger remains, even when the government might not seem to care about the stranger.

The Catholic Sun, newspaper of the Diocese of Phoenix, Ariz.,  details ongoing and growing efforts by the two provinces of the Jesuits plus Jesuit Refugee Service and the Missionary Sisters of the Eucharist, along with the bishops of the Diocese of Tucson, Ariz., and the Archdiocese of Hermosillo, Mexico, and the possible participation of No More Deaths, which already has a presence on the U.S.-Mexico border.

The projects being undertaken show that, despite the hardships endured by immigrants to a country where many people are at best ambivalent about having them, there are still people ready to act in a spirit of Christian charity.
