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.
“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
