Nazareth weekend with Little Brother Marc

"I 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 Nazareth;

- some fundamental attitudes to enter into the dynamic of Nazareth.  read more »
