Daily Reflection:
Tuesday, April 14, 2020


Thanks to Maureen Day, a member of our St. Thomas More Faith Family, we had the opportunity to reflect on the notion of “Disruption” in our lives and how it can bring us to deeper faith.

Today I am continuing that theme, but using the word, “Displacement.”

This reflection on “Displacement” is written by Fr. Henri Nouwen.

Fr. Nouwen who died 1996 is considered to be one of the great spiritual writers of our age.
He was a Dutch Catholic priest, professor, writer and theologian. His interests were rooted primarily in psychology, pastoral ministry, spirituality, social justice, and community.

This reflection on “Displacement” is taken from his book Compassion (click on image) :
