“words are important. Without them our actions lose meaning. And without meaning we cannot live.
Words can offer perspective, insight, understanding, and vision. words can bring consolation. comfort, encouragement and hope. words can take away fear, isolation, shame and guilt. words can reconcile, unite, forgive heal.
words can bring peace, joy, inner freedom and deep gratitude. words, in short, can carry love on their wings.
A word of love can be one of the greatest acts of love.
That is because when our words become flesh in our own lives and the lives of others, we can change the world.
Jesus is the Word made Flesh. In Him speaking and acting were One.”
-Father Henri Nouwen
