Justice for Immigrants- In God’s Eyes There are No Foreigners

“The message that we hear this week is very appropriate to help us in the times that we are living. Today’s readings remind us that God wants his Church to be the home for all peoples – to be one family that welcomes men and women of every nation, every race, every language and every culture. This is God’s vision! In God’s eyes – there are no ‘foreigners’, there are no strangers. He made this world to be his Kingdom! He made every people to belong to his family…The Church is ‘catholic’. That means the Church is universal, worldwide and all-inclusive. God our Father wants to make the whole world one family in Jesus.”
… From a Homily by Archbishop José H. Gomez of Los Angeles, August 19, 2017
