“In a mysterious way, our own suffering and pain can become a nourishment. Like our poverty and helplessness they can become a place where God resides. When we are successful and feel on top of the world, we can so easily turn away from God; when we are in pain we call out to him. There is a presence of God in suffering which can nourish the deepest part of our being.”

Jean Vanier
