Mary Jo Leddy lives with refugees at Romero House, a temporary shelter like no other. She invites us to see them with the eyes of Christ and begin to know our true selves.
"There is an African saying that it takes a village to raise a child," writes Leddy. "At Romero House we say that it takes a neighborhood to welcome a refugee. And it takes a refugee to make a neighborhood." The Other Face of God will inspire you and give you a greater understanding of what it means to love your neighbor as yourself.
