Etchings in the Sand…

Thoughts and Photos from the Desert…

Henri Nouwen

I was moved by this comment on Henri Nouwen, published this morning on North-Woods.

generation’s Kierkegaard.

By sharing his own struggles, he mentored us

helping us to pray while not knowing how to pray,

to rest while
feeling restless,

to be at peace while tempted,

to feel safe while
still anxious,

to be surrounded by a cloud of light while still in

and to love while still in doubt.”

~Ronald Rolheiser,
from the dedication of his book The Holy Longing
