Scope and content

Item consists of a book which Nouwen wrote about two North American parish priests who served in Guatemala -- Stanley Francis Rother and John Vesey. Three years after Stanley was murdered in Santiago Atitlan on July 28, 1981, John took his place as parish priest. "This is also a story about the mysterious presence of a faithful God in the midst of a country ravaged by violence, torture and assassination. Most of all, it is a story about prayer" (p. 10).
