The music staff at my church, Alamo Heights United Methodist, studied Home Tonight for our weekly Lenten meetings. This book, with its deep content and enriching activities, led me to have one of THE MOST soul-searching Lenten experiences. I am very grateful for this book. Thank you for publishing it. I have already given a copy as a gift to a colleague. I intend to spread it far and wide.
The Rev. Sheilagh Ashworth (Anglican Parish of Lloydtown) shared a memory of Henri when he was living at L'Arche Daybreak in Richmond Hill, Ontario...
I remember how Henri made the Cedars feel like an abundant and friendly home. When Henri lived at the Cedars (then the Dayspring) he had his room on the main floor and there were retreat rooms open for guests also on the main floor (the chapel was the whole of the basement). He never tired of welcoming people to his home. He took such joy in celebrating the Eucharist each morning and sharing a glass of wine (usually his bottle) in the evening. The Cedars' living room contained one of the best libraries on the spiritual life - also Henri's. His generous spirit was evident to all in the way he shared what he treasured - books, the spiritual life, good wine and friendship. Henri helped me become a more generous, spiritually alive and compassionate person and I give thanks to God for him.

It was when I first read Henri’s books that I came to realize that in my brokenness I can help another heal but that I also receive healing precisely in that reaching out. One can’t have it unless one gives it away. Praise God for this beautiful man’s ministry!
Rebecca Schneider of Mechanicsburg, Il shares:
I have fallen away from the church. I have somewhat fallen away from God. After receiving daily reflections through my employer email I feel myself being pulled back home. Henri Nouwen speaks to me. He seems to feel my pain and confusion and eases my mind. I wish I could have known him.
