Heart Speaks to Heart:
Three Prayers to Jesus
With frequent entreaty and some hesitation, Father Nouwen decided to try to write about the Sacred Heart. But instead of writing about the Sacred Heart, he "began to discern in my own heart a real desire to speak to the heart of Jesus and be heard."
The result is this extraordinary book, an outpouring that beautifully expresses the longing and expectations of the human heart responding to the heart of Jesus as revealed in the gospels.
The focus of these prayers--following the events of the passion, death, and resurrection--is the heart of Jesus and the author's identification with the brokenness of that heart and the desire for the love of Jesus. He struggles with doubt and faith, with the distractions of human desires, and with the acceptance of the love God has for him.
"I wrote to help people," explains Nouwen. To help them "enter into the compassionate heart of Jesus with their whole heart, and come to know there the healing love of God."
