An Insight from Jung

Friday 9 January 2009, by Willem Kuypers // Jean Vanier English

Carl Jung in one of his letters says this: I find you Christians a very good people. When you see somebody in prison, you see Jesus. When you see somebody hungry, you give him food and see Jesus. When you see someone naked, you see Jesus. But what I don’t understand is why you don’t see Jesus in your own poverty. Why is it that you see him in the poor that are outside of you but you don’t in the poor one that is inside of you?
