Brother John Vianney Russel, OPJan 28, 2023
Chatting with the Homeless
Looking for Jesus among the Least of Our Brothers
New Books Network 2023
Dominican Friar John Vianney Russel has made a habit of talking with homeless people and shares what he has learned. He doesn’t have all the answers and, in fact, we agree we are not even clear on the problem; but we start to pull on some of the threads—spiritual, psychological, material, political—of this very tangled knot. Brother John Vianney also talks about his own vocation and how we might listen for the voice of the Holy Spirit.
