Quote – Wounded Faith

“No heart is as whole as a broken heart and I would say no faith is as solid as a wounded faith.” Elie Weisel

Wisdom often comes from the place of profound pain. Elie Wiesel is a Jewish-American writer who lived through some of the worst that World War II had to offer.  His family was confined to a Nazi-imposed ghetto in Hungary, until they were interned at Auschwitz.

From this terrible experience he was able to formulate some incredible wisdom, like this:

“No heart is as whole as a broken heart and I would say no faith is as solid as a wounded faith.”

When we come to terms with the reality of our brokenness, we no longer live out of naivety. True in love. Also, I think, true in faith.
