Richard Flanagan, a Booker Prize winning author has written an article for London’s Guardian about what he witnessed in Lebanon and the Balkans. His experiences and reaction are very similar to those I had during our Catholic Relief Services trip in January. It is a long article but insightful. If you don have time, at least watch his video: Richard Flanagan – Syrian Refugees
Notes on the Syrian Exodus – Richard Flanagan
Today, in my archdiocese (and in many others), is the collection for Catholic Relief Services. CRS is providing essential services to the refugees, helping them stay alive on this perilous journey. Whether you are Catholic, Christian, Jewish, Muslim, (any other faith), or atheist, you are human. Please consider supporting this humanitarian effort.
