Season of Creation: Sept 10
According to the US Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB), millions of men, women, and children fall into the hands of traffickers in their own countries and abroad, every year. No sector or industry is immune to human trafficking. Victims may be workers in food processing factories, waiters or cooks at restaurant, construction workers, agricultural laborer, fishers, housekeeping staff at hotels, domestic help in private residences, or sex trafficked women and men in brothels, spas and massage parlors.
The US Catholic Sisters Against Human Trafficking is collaborative, faith-based national network that offers education, supports access to survivor services, and engages in advocacy in an effort to eradicate modern-day slavery.
“What kind of world do we want to leave to those who come after us, to children who are now growing up? … It is no longer enough, then, simply to state that we should be concerned for future generations. We need to see that what is at stake is our own dignity.”
That children, women, and men who are rescued from traffickers be given a safe place to recover from abuse, we pray.
