Seek a local or global organization fighting against sex trafficking and get involved - Daily Bible Reflections April 15,2014


HOLY TUESDAY
 
MODERN-DAY SLAVERY
 
“I will make you a light to the nations, that my salvation may reach to the ends of the earth.” – Isaiah 49:6
 
I read recently that there are an estimated 27 million slaves around the world today. Most of these are women who are being exploited for sexual labor against their will. The average age of trafficking victims is 12 years old. They are recruited with a false promise of a job and are coerced into prostitution. In secret centers they are raped, beaten, threatened (for their lives or their family’s), slapped with exorbitant debt, extremely maltreated, and sold to paying customers. This is a booming industry that makes about $12 billion worldwide, run by ruthless and powerful multinational criminal networks with a Philippine presence.
       Sickening but real. This evil is present in our world today. It’s high time we open our eyes to its realities and save those held captive by this darkness.
       Friend, you and I are called to illuminate the darkest places of this world with the light of Christ, to shine His light not just in places that are already well lit, but more so, in places consumed by utter darkness. Let’s do something about this. Let’s fight and be a light! Mike Viñas (mikemichaelfcv@yahoo.com)
 
Reflection: Seek a local or global organization fighting against sex trafficking and get involved.
 
Father, allow Your light to radiate through me to reach the darkest of dens and defeat evil.
 
Blessed Caesar de Bus, pray for us.
