Fr. David Hollenbach, SJ, Raises Questions During Refugee Lecture
Rev. David Hollenbach, S.J., Ph.D., University Chair in Human Rights and International Justice at Boston College and holder of the Cary and Ann Maguire Chair in Ethics and American History at the Library of Congress' John W. Kluge Center, posed the following questions during his lecture at Georgetown University on the refugee crisis: How should the world respond to the refugee crisis of today? What can Christian values contribute? How can the spirituality of Ignatius Loyola that inspires the Jesuit Refugee Service be of help, both in responding to the crisis and in all of life?
In the speech entitled "A Spirituality of Accompaniment," Fr. Hollenbach examined the interrelated roles of accompaniment, service and advocacy in responding to this significant humanitarian crises of our time. We offer the video of that lecture below.
