Scope and content

Item consists of 1 audio cassette featuring a talk given by Jean Vanier at an Assistants' Retreat in Erie, PA, in August 1984.

Content notes (or transcription) from beginning of the recording: The specific gift of Jesus to humanity is forgiveness. Forgiveness is essentially returning to the covenant, a recognition that we are made one for the other and called to give life to one another, that we belong to each other. We are there for Jesus and he is there for us. "Whatever you ask for in my name, the Father will give you". What do you ask? What is your yearning and what is your thirst? Is your asking coming from the depths of your being?
