Item description for My Sister, My Brother: Life Together in Christ by Henri J. M. Nouwen...
Overview Beloved author Henri J. M. Nouwen discovered Christ in communion with others in the body of Christ. Here is a collection of his thoughts and reflections, taken from a variety of his writings, about how we can live out our baptismal call to live with and love others in the community of believers. With the simplicity and honesty for which Nouwen is known, he describes his many insights and experiences of living with and caring for his fellow Christians. Nouwen found that a common life where Christians support, affirm, and encourage one another brought him into a more profound awareness of Christ's presence, both in himself and in the world. This book includes Nouwen's thoughts on the mystery of the Eucharist, the disciplines we need to live a common life, and the strength and gifts we discover in one another. A great inspiration for all Christians seeking to live out their life in Christ with other believers.
Publishers Description The story of Blessed Mother Teresa-who has been called the most revered and the most powerful woman of the past century-is simply an extraordinary love story. Jesus Christ was her beloved and the center of her entire life. Each of the seventeen meditations in this book is meant to encourage readers to experience Jesus by learning how Mother Teresa herself experienced Jesus.This newly revised and expanded edition of Praying with Mother Teresa covers the main themes of her unique spirituality, which focused on seeing her beloved Christ in all she met, especially in the poorest of the poor. Each meditation includes an opening and closing prayer, biographical information about her life, words from Mother Teresa and Scripture, and questions for reflection. As readers pray through each meditation, they will be inspired by their own experience of Jesus to shine with his light, as Mother Teresa did, to all whom they encounter each day.
