A Pastoral Letter on Immigration

| | Comments (1)


Apostle of the Sacred Heart Sister Mary Ellen's thoughtful response to Bishop Slattery's recent letter moved me to invite readers of Vultus Christi to read his Pastoral Letter on Immigration of last November 25th: "The Suffering Faces of the Poor are the Suffering Face of Christ." The text is available in both Spanish and English on the Tulsa Diocesan Website.


Fr. Mark,
Thank you for directing us to this powerful and impassioned letter! Bishop Slattery has adopted the mission of comforting the afflicted and afflicting the comfortable, all in light of the Gospel and his mission to preach that Gospel "in season and out of season."
I join him and the Diocese of Tulsa in prayer that our hearts may be opened to Christ in the "distressing disguise" of the poor, and that those who live in fear in our country may be comforted by Jesus and His Mother.
