Henri Nouwen

A quote from the collection of Catholic quotes of prayers, saints, and writers at The Quoting Catholic. Henri Neuwon was Catholic priest and writer. He also worked at a center for person’s with developmental disabilities. The persons he worked with often did not have the capacity to understand complicated words about concepts, but they understood his kindness and charity.

The Quoting Catholic

“When we honestly ask ourselves which person in our lives means the most to us, we often find that it is those who, instead of giving advice, solutions, or cures, have chosen rather to share our pain and touch our wounds with a warm and tender hand.” – Henri Nouwen, Author of The Wounded Healer

About Claudia

Hi!! My name is Claudia. Blogging is sort of a creative/therapeutic activity for me. I blog about being a wife, mother, student, caseworker, and simply being human through photography, words, music, and blog challenges. Mental illness has also been part of my life, so you'll sometimes find mental health and psychology in my posts. I've dealt with anxiety and depression most of my life. And my husband has bipolar disorder. My hope is that I may show readers that it is possible for people to live positive, productive lives despite mental illness, challenges, or frustrations.
