Praying as Living Reminders

Morning and Evening Prayer with Henri Nouwen


This book celebrates the bringing together of insightful wisdom from the great spiritual writer Henri Nouwen, fused together with the creative and poetic gifts of crafting communal and individual prayer that are singularly found in liturgical composer and author, David Haas. In these pages, David has developed and crafted a four-week cycle of morning and evening prayer modeled after the Liturgy of the Hours, with the use of David’s unique Psalm-Poems and passages from Nouwen’s canon of holy and sacred writings. Intended for individual prayer and small group gatherings, David has also included Psalm-Poems and canticle paraphrases for Midday and Night Prayer; as well as chapters featuring blessings for various occasions and reflections for the seasons of the liturgical year. Also included are musical suggestions and helpful indices. This is truly a blessed prayer companion for all who want to walk with Henri, and stay close to the daily prayer rhythm of the Church.
