Immense Wisdom Jan 27, 2007
Heart Speaks to Heart, a classic since its publication in 1989, has been repackaged as part of a collection of Nouwen titles. For those unfamiliar with this work, it is composed of three meditations Nouwen wrote during Holy Week as he spoke to (not "about") the Sacred Heart of Jesus. The thing about Nouwen is that he expresses a raft of human weaknesses while demonstrating an overwhelming desire to come ever closer to Jesus. The wisdom and hope he offers those who enter his meditations in "Heart" are immense. His style, placing himself in the gospel narrative, is compelling. In the meditation on Holy Thursday he resists Jesus' attempt to wash his feet, then recognizes that he can claim the Savior's boundless love by simply letting go of his fears, distrust, and anguish.
As we listen to Nouwen speak to Jesus, we find relevance in his struggles and encouragement in his prayer: "Help me close the many doors and windows of my heart through which I flee from you or through which I give entry to words and sounds coming not from you, but from a raging, screaming world that wants to pull me away form you."
This new carry-along edition of "Heart Speaks to Heart" is designed for praying over and over, alone or with others.
