Daily Thoughts from Jean Vanier - 6/8/09

// Jean Vanier English



Giving Life

All living beings give life. Man and woman together give life, conceiving and giving birth to a child. Once the baby is born, and even before birth, the parents give life to the child, and reveal to him/her its beauty by the way they welcome and love it. Or else they may bring inner death to the child, making it feel ugly and worthless through the way they reject or over-protect it.
