May 15, 2015, Current events compel us to join in positive thought, prayer and blessing of migrants. People from Africa and the Middle East are trying desperately to get to Europe. Many are children unaccompanied by adults. Just the journey to the Mediterranean Sea is horrific due to the inhumanity of smugglers. Then boats used are overloaded, unseaworthy, and lack basic necessities – food, water etc. Since January 2015, 1,800 migrants have died – 30 times higher than in 2014. Pope Francis called for a “united response” to the migrant problems as the Mediterranean Sea becomes a “vast cemetery”. From the UN – “The Mediterranean migration is the worst humanitarian crisis since WWII.” Also the countries receiving these migrants are overwhelmed and need help. Let us hope. pray, and support them.
