Accompanying Fr Michael Coleman SSCC and Mr Kato for their weekly visit to the Ushiku Detention House of Tokyo Immigration Office.
I met a detainee who speaks French, but not Japanese nor English.
He has been here for 26 months and doesn't know when he will be released.
Because of inhuman conditions of detention there was recently a case of suicide and a few days ago a case of attempted suicide.
We know also more than ten detainees died of illness for lack of medical care for these years.
Please pray for the detainees.
And if you can accompany Fr Michael to go chatting with them and comforting them,
you will be always welcome.
I'm happy that Fr Michael who will be 85 years old this October will celebrate his 60th anniversary of ordination this year.
And he is very active as parish priest in Our Lady of Perpetual Help Church in Toridé ! Please pray for him too !
