Daily Thoughts from Jean Vanier - 4/16/09

The Gift of Our Deepest Being

When so-called normal people become adolescents and adults, rational language frequently takes precedence over the language of communion. Communion can become a bit frightening because it implies vulnerability and the gift of self. Communion is not just a passing emotional experience in the child, but an experience which is written into each person’s story. It is the gift of our deepest being and calls for continuity and fidelity. Words are necessary to articulate this.
