Madonna with Child

Wishing warmest Christmas blessings to all, and the gift of peace to war-ravaged places in our hearts and in our world.

This Toposa mother and child remind us of the hope that comes with the birth of any child: hope for a better world, hope for lasting community, hope for resources freely shared that all may have enough for a decent life, hope that forgiveness can overcome violence, that love may be stronger than death, that we can embrace our common humanity and rise above whatever divides us.

Merry Christmas. A joy-filled New Year.  And deepest thanks for all the ways you support Mercy Beyond Borders in South Sudan and in Haiti!
