How Catholics Should Respond to the Refugee Crisis ft. Megan Gilbert

Holy crap, y'all. This episode totally blew my mind. Megan is the communications coordinator for Catholic Relief Services, and we get into some real nitty gritty about refugees. It was an honor to speak with her. 

It was such a treat to have Tori on the show to talk missions! I've known Tori for a few years, and her adventures have taken her to places like India and Ecuador. Tori truly has a heart for the poor and is dedicated to helping college students serve others and meet Jesus in a unique way. 

Topics discussed:

  • How Megan went from TV journalist to working with refugees
  • Why the refugee crisis exists
  • Why an attempt to make our borders safer shouldn't negate the need of refugees
  • Whether refugees are a political issue or a spiritual one
  • What the refugee process is like
  • What the actual definitions are of "refugee" and "resettlement" 
  • How we as Catholics can assist refugees in their time of need
