I tell myself the reason more people are not horrified by the conditions of detention camps at the southern border is they don’t really understand what’s going on. Clearly no one could rationalize what is happening to innocent children and desperate adults if they understood the trauma these asylum seekers are escaping as well as the trauma they experience on the journey and as they arrive at our border. I’m convinced that more education about what is occurring can help show people the truth, facts that have been surrounded in rhetoric, fearmongering, and lies.

Those truck tires are singing a hymn of commerce as they roll past St. Ann Church (see more photographs here) every day.

On the morning of June 24, 14 youth and their adult chaperones anxiously awaited the flight that would take them to South Bend, Indiana for the Notre Dame (ND) Vision Youth Ministry Conference. The beauty of ND Vision is there are actually two conferences going on at one time. The youth ministry conference, which has a few hundred youth, places each youth in a small group with others from around the country. Within these small groups the youth are able to really connect with others, and as groups they grow together in their faith.
