With World Youth Day in Krakow is just around the corner and many of those interested in attending are asking questions about travel visas. Our friends at the World Youth Day volunteer office in Krakow have some answers.
Premiering on Salt and Light TV this Sunday,   academy award winner Susan Sarandon takes you into the life of one of the most significant spiritual influencers of the late 20th century, Henri Nowen. This film Journey of the Heart,  is a thought-provoking look at the life of this unassuming, charismatic scholar considered by many of his contemporaries as one of the best and brightest minds of his time. Abandoning the insular works of academia, Nouwen embarked on a radical and personal pilgrimage of downward mobility that led him to L'Arche, a community of people with developmental disabilities.
A Roman Catholic priest, University of Notre Dame, Yale and Harvard professor, author and social activist, Nouwen possessed a unique insight into the human condition. Through his many books, which continue to be widely popular, Nouwen wrote passionately and eloquently about our human frailty and brokenness, while identifying and addressing the spiritual needs of today.
This documentary features an inspiring conversation with Nouwen shot just a year before his death. Interviews with key friends, prominent colleagues and family members help complete the picture of this unique man of faith - a person of passion and compassion. Journey of the Heart airs this Sunday at 9:05 pm eastern.

See you next week!
