This moving book shares stories of immigrant children who have fled Central America alone to escape violence and poverty. Eight story-reflections, each based on a different Beatitude and the experience of a different child, are written by attorneys and volunteers of Catholic Charities’ Esperanza Center in Baltimore, along with prayers written by Jesuit Father Leo O’Donovan.
Scott Rose helps immigrant children as a Catholic deacon and volunteer attorney with Esperanza Center. Leo J. O’Donovan. SJ, is Director of Mission for Jesuit Refugee Service/USA and President Emeritus of Georgetown University.
