JEAN VANIER – LOOKING AFTER OURSELVES -‘it is never easy to find
the harmony between rest, relaxation and nourishment on the one hand, and
generosity and availability on the other. Only the Holy Spirit can teach us to
love ourselves sufficiently to be able to give our lives as totally as possible. If
we are
not well, in good shape, joyful and nourished, we will not give ourselves to
others; instead, we shall communicate sadness and emptiness.’
CARDINAL NEWMAN – ‘To live is to change’
