Sacred Space Within

Stained glass window in the chapel of Saint-Michel d’Aiguilhe, Le Puy

"Many of us are not aware of the sacred space within us,

the place where we can reflect and contemplate,
the space from which wonderment can flow
as we look at the mountains, the sky......

....This place, which is the deepest in us all,
is the place of our very personhood,
the place of inner peace where God dwells
and where we receive the light of life

and the murmurings of the Spirit of God.

It is the place in which we make life choices
and from which flows our love for others."

Jean Vanier
- quoted in "Essential Writings" (Carolyn Whitney-Brown) pg 157-8
