• In The Name of Jesus by Henri Nouwen
After spending twenty years at Notre Dame, Yale, and Harvard teaching men and women preparing for ministry and leadership in the Church, and having written numerous laudable books (several on our shelves), the author became the chaplain to the mentally handicapped in the L'Arche Community in Toronto, Canada. He says, "I was suddenly faced with my naked self, IN a way it seemed I was starting my life all over again,. Their [the residents] liking or disliking me had absolutely nothing to do with anything I'd done until then. Nobody could read my books so my books could not impress anyone, and most of them never went to school...My considerable ecumenical experience proved even less valuable."

He found that to be there "in the name of Jesus was to consistently, radically, and very concretely announce and reveal God is love, and only love, and that every time fear, isolation, or despair begins to invade the soul, this is not something that comes from God. This sounds very simple and maybe even trite, but very few people know that they are loved without conditions or limits..." April Goodnewsletter
