Pope Francis: End the 'racist and xenophobic' approach to migrants along U.S.-Mexico border - Religion News Service

I’d like to share a personal story on this matter. This event occurred a few years ago while my father was running the homeless shelter that he had always helped run until just recently. It was Christmas and a “charitable,” “Christian,” organization was set to deliver presents just before Christmas to a group of needy children. A few days before they were to arrive, the organization called ahead to say that only children whose parents could provide valid U.S. birth certificates would receive presents……… ON CHRISTMAS. In case critical reading isn’t your style, THESE ARE CHILDREN ON CHRISTMAS BEING DENIED CHRISTMAS GIFTS. Most of the children at the shelter only wanted a warm winter coat for Christmas. I don’t care what your political beliefs are, these are children and no one deserves to be treated like that regardless of their legal status, not on Christmas and not on any other day of the year.

When I say I am a Christian
I am not shouting I’m clean living
I’m whispering I was lost
Now I’m found and forgiven

When I say I am a Christian
I don’t speak of this with pride
I’m confessing that I stumble
and need Christ to be my guide

When I say I am a Christian
I am not trying to be strong
I’m professing that I’m weak
and need His strength to carry on

When I say I am a Christian
I’m not bragging of success
I’m admitting I have failed
and need God to clean my mess

When I say I am a Christian
I am not claiming to be perfect
My flaws are far too visible
But, God believes I am worth it

When I say I am a Christian
I still feel the sting of pain
I have my shares of heartaches
So I call upon His name

When I say I am a Christian
I‘m not holier than thou
I’m just a simple sinner
Who received God’s good grace, somehow.
