St. Juan Diego, our first saint
from the Americas, pray for us.
We ask God the Father to pour forth
the protecting love of His Spirit upon all migrants,
taking special heed of those in need of support,
who are isolated or separated from their native lands,
whether by choice or necessity.
St. Juan Diego, intercede for those torn away
from their families in pursuit of work
so that they may be reunited: husbands with wives
and parents with children.
