Born Among Us - Day 5

A beautiful clay nativity scene from Peru shows the Holy Family as a homeless family, whilst the more wealthy observers look down from their balconies.

A prayer from displaced Peruvian people...

God, our promised land,
Christ, our way,
our journey has become long and hard
because we wander about
like nomads
not knowing where to go.
We are strangers in our own land,
without bread, a roof, a future.
But you came to find us
with your life-giving breath.
You, who are also displaced,
have become an exile with us.
you offer us anew the promised land.
Your spirit urges us toward
that joyous homecoming,
