“The whole of the vision of Jesus, which is the vision of peace, is about coming out from behind barriers and discovering people as they are. That is the promise that had been foretold through great prophets like Isaiah and Ezekiel: ‘I will remove the heart of stone in you and give you a heart of flesh.’ I will put my spirit within you.”

The spirit of God will be given, so that then we will see people, not through the glasses of our impoverished humanity and our wounds, but as God sees them. It’s a transformation. And to enter into the world of transformation we need to want it.”

~ Jean Vanier, Encountering ‘the Other’
