Suffering child is ours

Catholic Courier    |    05.02.2004


To the editor:
 
When I pulled out your March 11 issue from my mailbox and looked at the most heart-moving picture of that beautiful young boy's grief and desperately-hurt face -- and those eyes -- I cried. That was before I knew even what the article was about (human trafficking).
 
Then to read and know of our children being so abused, so deeply hurt. I cannot forget that face and those eyes. Today, to truly look at his eyes and what’s in his little heart, I still cry. What if that precious small child was mine? Yours?
 
Though I cannot physically touch and hug that child, I pray that I and each of us will just reach out and touch another in need, in love and compassion from Jesus.
