Jean Vanier continues Á Kempis’ point by explaining that we cannot gain a healthy self-perception without going through our junk-filled garage.

“If we are to make the passage to acceptance and love of others we must start by recognizing our own blocks, jealousies, prejudices and hatreds.”

Think now of the blocks and jealousies which both the religious and governmental powers had in regard to Jesus.  As we near Holy Week, we are mindful that being faithful doesn’t always guarantee safety.
