Way of the Heart: Remembering Henri Nouwen
Wednesday, September 21, 2016 - It's not often that we meet someone with whom everyone says is easy to speak, who's always completely present to you and who seems to understand exactly what you're feeling. That's what everyone says about Henri Nouwen, one of the greatest spiritual thinkers of our time.

Henri Nouwen was a Dutch Catholic priest. He was a professor and an author and for the last 10 years of his life, he lived here in Canada, in Richmond Hill, Ontario, at the L'Arche Daybreak community​.​

This week, as we conmemorate the 20th anniversary of his death, Deacon Pedro remembers Henri Nouwen with ​​two people who lived with ​him at l'Arche: Sr. Sue Mosteller​, CSJ​ and Joe Egan. If you want to find out more about Henri Nouwen or find out more about his books (and pick one to read), visit the Henri Nouwen Society.
