BE NOT AFRAID

JEAN VANIER

*The message of Jesus is eternal and life giving and corresponds to a deep need in the human heart.

*I was hungry and starving and you were obese, thirsty and you were watering your garden with no road to follow and without hope and you called the police and were happy when they took me a prisoner. Barefoot with ragged clothing and you were saying “I have nothing to wear tomorrow I will buy something new,” sick and you asked “Is it infectious”.

*As Leonardo da Vinci painted the last supper a crowd watched over his shoulder. As he was working on the fruit on the table, he saw the crowd looking at every stroke he was making while he was painting.With one angry brush stroke he obliterated the fruit and pointed to the face of Jesus and said”Don’t look down here at the fruit, look up there!”
