lost my heart to Jesus of Nazareth”
I was invited to speak about
“Nazareth”. Of course this is a central theme in
the spirituality of Charles de Foucauld: like Brother Charles we were
all seduced by the “human face of God at Nazareth”
as Emmanuel Asi says. So I guess that nothing new will come out, but it
is always important to come back to the source and drink fresh water.
My presentation will have 3 points:
- to look at
how Charles de Foucauld’s conception of Nazareth evolved;
- to go through
the Gospel and see what does that mean for Jesus to be a man of
fundamental attitudes to enter into the dynamic of Nazareth.
