The big news this week is that Pope Francis went the the Greek island of Lesbos and took back three refugee families who will now be: “…guests of the Vatican.” Good idea. Our administration would open the White House for the same, and similar, things — as we have opened our home over the years. We have had what the Catholic Worker Movement refers to as a “Christ Room” in our places where we have, periodically, taken in homeless people. There is little reason many of us in America couldn’t be more generous with our space. Note: Another option is to house-share with friends, or neighbors… And take the savings to fund more, say, Habitat for Humanity home builds around the world.
