At every Liturgy we pray for "the captives and their salvation". This is not a theoretical scenario for me. I visit people who have broken no laws yet have been imprisoned here in Australia for years because they sought asylum as refugees in Australia. Today, the seventh person I knew personally in "immigration detention" in Australia committed suicide. He was 19 years old.
Please remember those in captivity in Australia's Immigration Detention Centres.

Another refugee being held in the "Curtin" Immigration Detention Centre attempted suicide today by hanging himself from a tree. Thank God some other detainees were able to cut him down in time. He is a 26 year old Tamil from Sri Lanka.

Lord, have mercy on us for our inhumanity to our fellow humans. Let these wasteful deaths soften the hearts of those in control of this outrageous immigration situation, so that action is taken to change the laws and procedures that cause such terrible stress.
