Henri Nouwen – The friend who can be…

The friend who can be silent with us in a moment of despair or confusion…


“The friend who can be silent with us in a moment of despair or confusion, who can stay with us in an hour of grief and bereavement, who can tolerate not knowing… not healing, not curing… that is a friend who cares.”
-Henri Nouwen

Henri Nouwen – When we honestly ask ourselves…

When we honestly ask ourselves which person in our lives means the most to us…


“When we honestly ask ourselves which person in our lives means the most to us, we often find that it is those who, instead of giving advice, solutions, or cures, have chosen rather to share our pain and touch our wounds with a warm and tender hand.”
-Henri Nouwen
