With our exploration of Henri Nouwen’s book at an end, I want to turn to Pope Francis’ first encyclical, Lumen Fide. The implications of his words go beyond the Roman Church. I hope you have a copy of Lumen Fide so you can match my meditations to the document itself. It is easily available in a variety of editions at Amazon, and also a free online version at http://www.vatican.va.
God is calling the entire Church to journey into the “light of faith.” Pope Francis’ words are a compelling invitation for us to do that. We launch into that journey next week.
