Scope and content

Item consists of a book containing three prayers which Nouwen wrote during Holy Week while staying with the Trappists in Holland, Manitoba. Nouwen had been encouraged to write about the Sacred Heart by Madame Pauline Vanier during his stay at L'Arche in Trosly, France in 1985 and 1986.
As is stated on the front flap: ". . .Instead of writing about the Sacred Heart [Nouwen] 'began to discern in [his] own heart a real desire to speak to the heart of Jesus and be heard.'"
