Prayers for Peacemakers , 31 January 2019 Lesvos

Pray for the people confined to the Aegean islands during the winter months. Showers are falling on migrants who live in tents and containers on Lesvos. Rapidly flowing streams are coursing down between their small tents in the olive grove. Migrants are left to fend for themselves. They have to be creative and use the garbage that they find in the surrounding area to winterise their shelters and protect themselves from the cold, the damp, and the rain. 

LESVOS: Harvesting Tears In Moria

We were walking through the village of Moria on Lesvos when we saw thick smoke rising in the distance from an area close to the concentration camp of Moria.

BORDERLANDS: The Rosary on the Migrant Trail

A traditional Catholic rosary consists of five decades, totaling 59 beads, and a crucifix on a cord. Within the past year 58 bodies where recovered from the Sonoran desert in the vicinity of Ajo, Arizona, 42 miles north of the US/Mexico border. Humanitarian aid organizations estimate that for every body recovered, at least five are not. The remote nature of borderlands and the natural conditions accelerate decomposition.  59 bodies, 58 beads.
