Tomorrow, the Mass at the border, led by Cardinal Sean O'Malley and the members of the USCCB Committee on Migration, will be livestreamed. You can watch the livestream, which begins at 11:30 EDT, by clicking here. As well, the bishops are inviting all Catholics to fast and pray tomorrow in solidarity with our immigrant brothers and sisters. The power of prayer is not to be discounted, and the power of the photo-op, God willing, will help unharden the hearts of the GOP leadership in the House and let the Senate-passed immigration bill come to a vote.
