Martin Luther King
I hope that we will always remember why we celebrate this national holiday. King stood for what he believed was right; he stood for freedom and was willing even to give his life in pursuit of freedom for all. My heart is concerned now for the immigrants in our country; they come to find freedom and how are we treating them? Let us reflect today on the gift of freedom in our lives and how we can assure this gift for others around us. Jesus welcomed all and certainly showed compassion on the less fortunate, the outcasts, the poor.
Let us keep Haiti in our prayer today.
