Overview

The cycle of the liturgical year engages us with an entirely different rhythm than our usual frenzied pace.  It invites us to live time in eternity, to discover a new understanding of God and creation.

Henri Nouwen lived the liturgical year with sensitivity and imagination.  The feasts and seasons inspired his sermons on the great mysteries of our faith.  And praying the liturgical year gave him a glimpse of eternity in the present moment.

Nouwen’s responses to the spiritual seasons were often delicately woven into the fabric of his writing.  Eternal Seasons gathers, for the first time, selections for an entire liturgical year from forty of Nouwen’s books.

This valuable companion features a thoughtful introduction for each of the liturgical seasons, followed by a generous selection of brief, readable passages.  Whether focusing on the tenor of the season, the many dimensions of a feast day or the import of a particular saint, these readings enable us to reflect and pray in closer harmony with the Church year.

Eternal Seasons is ideal for personal reflection, group settings and as a fresh resource for liturgical ministers of all Christian faiths. 4 CDs (5 hours approx.)
