The Sisters of the Upper Mississippi River Valley invite us this Advent to consider welcoming the Immigrant. These Sister risk-takers, including the Sinsinawa Dominicans, want to ask us for a space in our hearts and our prayers and our lives for someone newly arrived to our country. Instead of the government’s stance on designing “secure communities,” these women want to be “welcoming communities.” They want to welcome the one who another would deport or cast away as unimportant.
So, for whom are you making room in these last weeks of Advent?
