The Strong Need The Weak

Patience in Community

Patience, like forgiveness, is at the heart of community life–patience with ourselves, with the laws of our own growth and with others.

– Jean Vanier

On Incarnation, Literature, and Justice

A good reading of narrative and image (dominant aspects of literature) leads to vulnerability and openness in the classroom, an openness to the challenge of living who you are and living who you are meant to be. It cultivates respect for the practice and art of being creative: and being creative means living and learning in a spirit of openness to God, to self (the deepest unknown internal territory), and to others.

– Margaret Anne Smith
