Synopsis: It was January 1990, the dawn of a new decade, and Henri Nouwen, world-renowned spiritual writer, was in France but his writing wasn t going well. Frustrated and discouraged, he decided to go to Lourdes, even though it was the off season, to give his anxious heart a rest. This profoundly inspiring journal is the result of his three-day stay.
Lourdes restored Nouwen s inner peace and helped him return to his sacred center. He realized, of course, that he did not need to be at Lourdes to find peace and joy. The purity, simplicity, and freedom he experienced belong to the heart and can be lived anywhere.
Whether we have been to Lourdes or not, does not matter. This small journal is bound to touch our own restless and searching hearts and help us to find again our own sacred center, the living Christ within us.
From the Author:
"I love people. I love them if they believe in God or not. I'm not out to convert everybody. That's not my attitude. A lot of people contact me who have absolutely no sense of God, who I love deeply, who love me deeply. So I'm not saying that if you don't believe in God you're not a good person. It's just the opposite. Some of the best people are often people with no formal religious interest, and a lot of religious people are very narrow-minded and extremely anxious. These lines are hard to draw, but I do believe that you continue to see people searching for the Spirit, searching for something that transcends the earth." -- Henri Nouwen, 1992
Much has been made of Henri Nouwen's weaknesses and vulnerabilities. But one of his greatest strengths is illustrated in his words above. Henri was able to love everyone. Henri was able to understand and to deeply, firmly, totally connect with the knowledge that Hindu or Christian, Muslim or Jew, atheist or acolyte, we are all of us linked, all of us vital, all of us beloved -- equally and without distinction.
FINDING OUR SACRED CENTER was written at a pivital time for Henri. He had not yet written his last, great books and struggled to give them form ... to find meaning in his life's work. Listen to how Mother Teresa's profound and simple wisdom guided his hands and heart. And whether you travel to Lourdes in the flesh or only through the pages of this little book, know what Henri knew -- that you are not alone. -- The Henri Nouwen Legacy Trust
