BORDERLANDS: The Rosary on the Migrant Trail

 

 

By John Heid

A traditional Catholic rosary consists of five decades, totaling fifty-nine beads, and a crucifix on a cord. Within the past year fifty-eight bodies where recovered from the Sonoran desert in the vicinity of Ajo, AZ, forty-two miles north of the U.S.-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.  Fifty-nine bodies, fifty-eight beads.

Pray for the refugees and volunteers who make a life together at the PIPKA Camp.  

Authorities on Lesvos are threatening to shut the camp down for “hygienic” reasons, although these reasons seem to be a front for political motives.  PIPKA provides refugees and asylum seekers a more dignified and safer environment than the filthy, chaotic and overcrowded Moria camp.

For more information on the threat to PIPKA see this press release.
