What began in 1979 as a response to a random bulletin board posting would ultimately change Sister Marilyn Lacey's 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 world's most vulnerable. Timely and engaging, This Flowing Toward Me offers fresh, personal insights into the world of refugees and international immigrants.

Marilyn Lacey, R.S.M., has worked with refugees for the past 25 years, both in displaced persons camps in Africa and Asia, and as Director of Refugee Services with Catholic Charities in San Jose. In 2001 she was honored by the Dalai Lama as an "Unsung Hero of Compassion" and has long been an advocate for refugees and migrants. She holds an M.S.W. from U.C. Berkeley and in 2008 she founded the nonprofit Mercy Beyond Borders, whose mission is to partner with displaced women and children overseas in ways that help them move up from extreme poverty.
