Full Product Description
These reflections on persons experiencing homelessness and poverty -- the outcasts of our society -- help readers to understand the potential within all human beings to teach us something about the world and ourselves.
Some are addicts of drugs and alcohol, some have been turned out by their families, and others are simply lost beings on the streets of our towns and cities. Yet the words of Henry Garon turn them from objects -- often slovenly individuals who sleep on park benches, in subways and buses, or sheltered beneath store fronts -- into children of God, individuals with their own losses and dreams. While some are simply "loners," others truly want a connection with someone willing to listen. As we listen by reading their stories, they enrich us and help us see more clearly those whose eyes we've tried to avoid.
Henry A. Garon, a retired professor of physics at Loyola University, New Orleans and the author of The Cosmic Mystique, is a married deacon in the Catholic Church who has worked for many years at Ozanam Inn, a Society of St. Vincent de Paul residence for the homeless in New Orleans.
