April 7, 2017 – Perilla Mountains

Today our journey to remember JOSE JIMENEZ LUCAS was short, just a few miles outside of Douglas in the Perilla Mountains.   Jose did not walk very far from the border wall before he was overcome by the August Arizona heat and the numerous prickly cactus that covers this desert mountain.   May he be enjoying full life and may his family feel the peace of the love of God in their loss.

Joining us in prayer today were two friends from Canada, a country that generously welcomes migrants and refugees as they journey to safety and a more whole life, and three friends from Arizona, Montana and Virginia.   Their prayers and presence were deeply appreciated.

A Franciscan Blessing and PRAYER FOR ASYLUM SEEKERS were shared during our prayer.
