FROM JEAN VANIER
Short inspirational passages delivered to your email box each day that will help give balance, perspective and spiritual depth to your day. Drawn largely from Vanier's best selling books, including Becoming Human, Finding Peace, Community and Growth and Made for Happiness.
Communion is not fusion. Fusion leads to confusion. In a relationship of communion, you are you and I am I; I have my identity and you have yours. I must be myself and you must be yourself. We are call to grow together, each one becoming more fully himself or herself. Communion in fact gives the freedom to grow. It is not possessivness. It entails a deep listening to others, helping them to become more fully themselves.
