A Hope-Filled Eastertide Season to One and All!

Welcome

I want to personally welcome you to this special site devoted to celebrating and promoting the life and work of one of my spiritual heroes: Henri Nouwen. People all over the world have been extraordinarily impacted by the life of this “imperfect” saint of God. I invite you to join me in the continuing exploration of Nouwen’s unique spirituality, a spirituality that points us to Jesus, who specializes in working through imperfect vessels like you and me. On this welcome page, I freely share both my collected as well as random thoughts about Nouwen: his life, his work, his all-encompassing relationship — with God, with others, and with himself.

As we enter into the Eastertide season, let us do so as hopeful people who are eager to live the resurrection reality in the here and now even as we anticipate our future glorification with the resurrected Christ. Allow Henri Nouwen's words to penetrate our consciousness in a way that profoundly affects our lifestyle, which is one of fervent hope!

"Hope is an attitude where everything stays open before me. It is daring to stay open to whatever today will offer me, or tomorrow, two months from now or a year from now, that is hope ... Whenever we pray in hope, we put our lives in the hands of God. Fear and anxiety fade away and everything we are given and everything we are deprived of is nothing but a finger pointing out the direction of God's hidden promise"

- Henri Nouwen, With Open Hands

"I thank Wil Hernandez for continuing to study and disseminate the brilliant gifts and Gospel-centered ministry of Henri Nouwen. This book, and his two other previous studies on Nouwen, are now keeping us all on message! Wil has become a friend of a friend, who was an inspired friend to all who love the simple and wondrous Gospel of Life. His writings and his ministry will stand the tests of time, because Henri Nouwen saw and wrote from a bright and clear level that is always true."
