Item consists of a sound recording of Nouwen speaking at York Central Hospital, in Richmond Hill on June 3, 1992. Nouwen spoke on the subject of spirituality and medical care. Some topics covered include forgiveness during times of grave illness, the experience of being near death, and the need to shift caring for the sick away from viewing illness as "the great enemy" and death as failure. Nouwen talks of the necessity of befriending illness and death, and to address and accept mortality.
