The current U.S. administration has adopted a policy of literally ripping children from the arms of their parents and putting them in fenced enclosures at the southern U.S. border. Heartbreaking cries of Where Is “Mi mamá” and “Mi papa” are heard around the world on TV news and internet videos.
Contrary to every sense of human compassion and contrary to the expressed pleas of His Holiness Pope Francis, the Trump administration insists that this cruel practice is both acceptable and necessary. Sisters, HVM disagrees. Sisters HVM believes that a spirit of compassion should guide the actions of nations just as it should guide the actions of each of us, the individual children of God.
