World Refugee Day

by Lisa DeRosa

Ever since I worked with refugees in the mid 80s, those who are displaced from their homes by war and violence have held a special place in my heart. Because I feel so deeply about this, it has been hard for me to write, but there are others who have written very eloquently from a Christian perspective that you might be interested in.

The following, I think, are must read articles:

Craig Greenfield’s post: Jesus Was A Refugee 

Pope Francis’ call to Catholic congregations to shelter Syrian refugees.

And if you are looking for a way to respond check out “We Welcome Refugees” and the UNHCR website.
