Daily Thoughts from Jean Vanier - 3/7/09

// Jean Vanier English



Celebrating Deaths

To celebrate death is to gather around and talk about the person—about Janine, for example, who died recently. We gatherd to say how beautiful she was, how much she had brought to us. Her sisters came, and we wept and laughed at the same time. We wept because she was gone, but we laughed together because she did so many beautiful things.

Jean Vanier in "Living Gently in a Violent World," p. 32-33
