Saturday’s many Lights for Liberty rallies and vigils protesting U.S. immigration policies attracted churchgoers, but other believers were too scared to attend after the government promised a big roundup of undocumented immigrants. At. St. Clare of Montefalco in Chicago, Fr. John Celichowski has a parish full of immigrants looking for guidance and a good word, so he preached about it at every Sunday Mass: Jesus was a refugee in Egypt whose parents fled oppression.
