God Especially Calls the Least among Us to Know Him Deeply — A Quote by Brennan Manning in “Furious Longing of God”

“‘The invitation to union is extended not only for Christians of iron will, austere seekers of God, those who preach the gospel and get doctorates in theology. It is not reserved for those who are well-known mystics or for those who do wonderful things for the poor.… [It is for] those poor enough to welcome Jesus. It is for people living ordinary lives and who feel lonely. It is for all those who are old, hospitalized or out of work, who open their hearts in trust to Jesus and cry out for his healing love.'”

— Jean Vanier, as quoted by Brennan Manning, “Furious Longing of God”, Kindle location 668
