Governments worldwide are urged to take consistent measure to defeat this scurge. This resolution decalred that such a day was necessary to “raise awareness of the situation of victims of human trafficking and for the promotion and protection of their rights.”
“No more slaves, but brothers an sisters!”
(Message of Pope Francis, Day of Peace, 2 January 2015)
Can you pray with me for the end of this violence:
- Women, men, and children are treated as objects, deceived , abused, often sold several times for various purposes, and eventually killed, or in another way, mentally or physically destroyed, and finally excluded and abandoned.
- Prayer: Help us, God our Creator, to take on responsibility for all those who have become victims of trafficking; to protect their rights, to ensure their safety and that of their famiies, to prevent corrupt people and criminals from evading justice and to prevent them from having the final say on the lives of others
