As we continue our Lenten journey, an important way to bring the Lord into every aspect of our life is to fast from talking and feast on listening.
"From the shining cloud, the Father's voice is heard: This is my Son, listen to him."
This Sunday, I wish to echo the call made by the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops to stand with the vulnerable, including our immigrant brothers and sisters and participate in the National Call-In Day to Protect Dreamers.
The National Call-In Day is for all of the faithful in the United States to call their local Members of Congress on Monday, February 26 to protect Dreamers from deportation; to provide a path to citizenship, and avoid any damage to the existing protections for families and unaccompanied minors in process.
Our faith compels us to stand with the vulnerable, including our immigrant brothers and sisters. We have done so continually, but we must show our support and solidarity now in a special way. Now is the time for action.
Though calling our local Member of Congress might not be a comfortable call to make, I encourage you to consider it. Showing our solidarity and supporting the USCCB's effort is also an important way to give alms.
May you continue to discover new ways to experience Lent with greater intent.
