On the World Day of Peace, Pope Francis invited us to, “embrace all those fleeing from war and hunger, or forced by discrimination, persecution, poverty and environmental degradation to leave their homelands.”
Respond with meaning
Communities can respond to Pope Francis’ invitation by commemorating National Migration Week from January 7-14. National Migration Week is a chance to reflect on the circumstances confronting migrants—including immigrants, refugees and survivors of human trafficking. It is a special opportunity for the Church in the United States to live out the Share the Journey campaign, a global effort to show love and honor the dignity of our migrant and refugee neighbors.
Visit sharejourney.org to download Justice for Immigrants’ National Migration Week toolkit, including sample petitions and ideas to engage your community.
Did you know that the Knights of Columbus has a website “Catholic Pulse.” Catholic Pulse is a service of the Knights of Columbus dedicated to bringing readers original commentary, a summary of the daily news, and featured opinion that Catholics need to know.
We invite you to spend time with us each day, reading our contributors’ opinions and commentary, catching up on the daily news, and staying current on featured opinion from across the web.
Do you know someone who has left the Catholic faith? Maybe a child or spouse who has stopped attending Mass? Do you have questions that you don’t know how to answer? Go to http://www.catholicscomehome.org/ for answers and good videos. Or send this link to that loved one that you want to invite back.

Epiphany: (1) a moment in which you suddenly see or understand something in a new or very clear way; (2) is a Christian feast celebrating the arrival of the Magi (the Three Kings) in Bethlehem, the baptism of Jesus Christ, and other miracles.
Today the Roman Catholic Church celebrates the Feast Day of the Epiphany of the Lord. When have you suddenly seen or understood Jesus Christ in a new or very clear way?
Today is the Memorial of Saints Basil the Great and Gregory Nazianzen, Bishops and Doctors of the Church. Prayer of St. Basil the Great: O Lord our God, we beseech you, to ask for the gift we need. Steer the ship of our life to yourself, the quiet harbor of all storm-stressed souls. Show us the course which we are to take. Renew in us the spirit of docility. Let your Spirit curb our fickleness; guide and strengthen us to perform what is for our own good, to keep your commandments and ever to rejoice in your glorious and vivifying presence. Yours is the glory and praise for all eternity. Amen.
