Will you help undocumented people even if it means breaking the law?
This post was placed in one of the local ParishWorld blogs for St. Catherine of Siena Catholic Church in Rialto, CA. The sentiment of this anonymous writer seemed so genuine, it prompted us to place it as a question that we would like all of you to reflect upon.
Here is the original post:
I have a concern that tugs at my heart. Am I willing to go to jail for helping an undocumented person by giving them food, clothing or spiritual nurishment? As a Catholic I know it is what I am called to do, but will I accept the consequences if this pending legislation goes into effect?
Here is our question to you:
As Catholics, you know what you are called to do. But if this pending legislation becomes law, will you still help all our undocumented brothers and sisters? Are you willing to accept the consequences of such actions?
Let us know what you think. You can sign your comment anonymous if you so wish.
