Despair Repair

October 10, 2021


We are called to see our suffering in the same light, as a means of grace whereby we receive the assurance of God’s presence and represent God’s presence to others in distress. “We do not know where we will be two, 10, or 20 years from now,” wrote Henri Nouwen. “What we can know, however, is that man suffers and that a sharing of suffering can make us move forward…in the conviction that the full liberation of man and his world is still to come.”
