A Prayer to Jesus Christ for Immigrants

O Jesus, who in the very first days of Thine earthly life wast compelled,

together with Mary,

Thy loving Mother,

and Saint Joseph,

to leave Thy native land and to endure in Egypt

the misery and discomforts of poor emigrants,

turn Thine eyes upon our brethren,

who, far away from their dear country

and from all that is dear to them,

are not infrequently constrained to struggle

with the difficulties of a new life,

and who are likewise often exposed to grave dangers

and snares for their immortal souls.

Be Thou their guide in their uncertain journey,

their help in trouble,

their comfort in sorrow;

keep them safe in their faith,

holy in their lives,

and faithful to their children,

their wives, and their parents;

grant, O Lord, that we may be able to embrace them affectionately

once more in their native land,

and hereafter to live inseparably united to them

at the foot of Thy throne in our heavenly country.
