  • What began in 1979 as a response to a random bulletin board posting would ultimately change Sister Marilyn Laceys life, and the lives of countless refugees. In vivid prose, Sister Lacey narrates her twenty-five year spiritual journey of work with those displaced by conflict and disaster. In the spirit of Dead Man Walking, she invites us to solidarity with some of the worlds most vulnerable. Timely and engaging, This Flowing Toward Me offers fresh, personal insights into the world of refugees and international immigrants. More importantly, it stirs our hearts to remember the gospel mandate to welcome the stranger.

    A warm, personal and inviting memoir about one of the most important issues of our time-the refugee crisis-told through the eyes of a remarkable woman of faith. In Sister Marilyns beautiful new book you will not only encounter a remarkable gathering of men and women, but also better understand how much the poor have to teach us about life, about hope, and about God.

    "With a lively mix of humor, insight and compassion, the author invites those of us living behind locked doors in a world shuttered by homeland security to risk engaging unknown neighbors near and far, and there discover, perhaps to our unending surprise, that where we most felt threatened, a wealth of blessings instead awaits us."
    - Helen Prejean, C.S.J., Author of Dead Man Walking
