Principle 23 – Love the Stranger

The twenty third guiding principle of our document Love the Stranger


We encourage policies that give migrants and refugees the right to work, to facilitate their contribution to the common good of our society.

Intercessory Prayer

Loving creator
we pray for a world where all are treated with respect
and given the opportunity to thrive
we ask that you guide our leaders and all in positions of responsibility
to embrace policies that grant migrants and refugees the right to work
allowing them to contribute their gifts to the common good
as they find meaningful employment, may their lives be filled with purpose
and their presence enrich our communities
Lord in your mercy, hear our prayer.
