IT HAPPENED TOMORROW The Space between Us

vitaleBy Guido Vitale

“God loves us as a parent loves a child — but a parent who truly loves their child makes space for the child to develop his or her own identity. It is the space we create for one another that allows love to be like sunlight to a flower, not like a tree to the plants that grow beneath. The role of love, human and Divine, is, in the lovely phrase of Irish poet John O’Donohue, ‘to bless the space between us’.” (Lord rabbi Jonathan Sacks)
