Editor’s Note: As we enter into the sacred season of Lent, our Overseas Lay Missioners and DC Service Corps volunteers will be compiling a Lenten Litany, each writing a one-line prayer close to their hearts. Today, Overseas Lay Missioner Rhonda Eckerman, who serves on the U.S.-Mexico border, shares a prayer for migrants. 


Lord, have mercy on us.
Christ, have mercy on us.
Lord, have mercy on us.
Christ, hear us.
Christ, graciously hear us.

Light the path of the migrants in the desert, keeping them from harm. Lord, by your cross and resurrection, you have set us free.
