June - To clothe the naked
"You changed my mourning into dancing; you took off my sackcloth and clothed me with gladness." (Psalm 30:12)
Today, this nakedness affects thousands of migrants from (and in) the Middle East who run away to find a new hope of life, but who may plan to seek in the future their way back home. In Jordan, there are more than 1.5 million who have been forced by the crisis in Syria and Iraq to leave their homes: the Holy Father wanted to give them a new dignity, “clothing them” with the possibility of starting a new job in order to help themselves and above all, their families. This is the “Garden of Mercy” project, which will be implemented by Caritas Jordan at the Center of Our Lady of Peace in Amman.
