brokenness

Our brokenness is the wound through which the full power of God can penetrate our being and transfigure us in God.
Loneliness is not something from which we must flee but the place from where we can cry out to God, where God will find us and we can find God.
Yes, through our wounds the power of God can penetrate us and become like rivers of living water to irrigate the arid earth within us. Thus we may irrigate the arid earth of others, so that hope and love are reborn.

-Jean Vanier The Broken Body

Uplifting! By so simple words, a pure sense of being both human and divine.
