Nowen (a now-deceased Roman Catholic priest who sepent the last years of his ministry living in a community of developmentally disabled folks in Canada) starts his work with the story of the apostles on the Road to Emmaus and their failure to recognize the risen Jesus as he walks with them. They do, however, recognize him in the 'breaking of the bread' he celebrates during dinner. They, in turn, are full of hope. Nouwen uses the many faceted emotions and images of their hopelessness after the crucifixion and their transformation as they recognize the Lord, to relate our human experiences to the Eucharist--in he Greek 'gratitude.' He identifies the essence of the Eucharistic life as gratitude and then, step by step, shows how gratitude above all is what is needed to heal resentments, hurts, the losses of life, the feelings of termination and hopelessness that may accompany aging. This book can be used just one or two paragraphs at a time or in larger pieces. It is especially appropriate for the 'Year of the Eucharist' that Catholics are celebrating in 2005. What a wonderful guide for this year, or any year!
