A Prayer from Jean Vanier

The cry of the poor disturbs and shatters security and carefully planned ways, habits, and social values. The poor can create dis-order, crying out for a new order. The poor and the weak prune, purify.

In their poverty and weakness they reveal the poverty and weakness, the darkness and shadow areas in those with power, comfort, and security and lead them into insecurity and poverty of spirit

-Jean Vanier from Eat With Them
