A statement on Human Trafficking Awareness Day

LOUISVILLE — As all humans are created in the Imago Dei, no one should live in physical or spiritual bondage.  Our Lord, Jesus the Christ, taught, “The Lord has sent me to announce freedom for prisoners, to give sight to the blind, to free everyone who suffers” (Luke 4:18). Indeed, we believe that God sent Jesus because humanity is God’s beloved children. Jesus became human that humanity might become a bit more divine.  Nonetheless, we have failed to celebrate the divinity in our siblings. We have failed to completely usher in God’s Kindom on Earth. We have failed to abolish slavery, the total subjugation of some people beneath other people.
