Daily Thoughts from Jean Vanier - 5/20/09

// Jean Vanier English



The Human Family

Humanity in its entirety is a body, and in the body each member is important. Groups, nations or races which cut themselves off from others, or seek to dominate by imposing their own culture, ideology and customs, by suppressing the identity of another’s culture, wound and hurt not only that particular people but the whole of humanity and themselves. To-day, more than ever before, we are called to become more conscious of the fundamental unity of the human family and to help each group of people to find their identity and place in it, and to grow in openness toward others.

- Jean Vanier, Community and Growth, p.6
