Jesus came in weakness rather than in might. He made himself one with the people, identifying especially with the lowly and poor, the outcasts and the marginalized, the powerless and the vulnerable. The evangelism he taught and demonstrated was an evangelism from below, not from above. So, too, we, when we experience the power of God at work in us and through us, remind ourselves that God’s power is most clearly evident in our weakness.
-Br. David Vryhof, SSJE
