With open hands and heart

 | 

More than 40 years ago, my first encounter with Henri Nouwen and his good and holy heart came in the form of his book With Open Hands (Ave Maria Press, 1972). In it, Nouwen suggested that many of us come before God with clenched fists and, as a result, are unable to receive God's gifts, one of the most important of which is the sacramental and real presence of Jesus in the Eucharist.

Trinity is our home

During my 67 years' worth of life lessons, I've been told more than once that three is not a good number for relationships. Don't date in threes, don't live in threes, and don't jointly own anything in threes. One person always gets left out; another tries to take over. Then there is the person in the middle. Threes are a disaster when it comes to relationships.
