C.S. Lewis and the broken heart
'To love at all is to be vulnerable. Love anything, and your heart will certainly be wrung and possibly broken. If you want to make sure of keeping it intact, you must give your heart to no one, not even to an animal. Wrap it carefully round with hobbies and little luxuries; avoid all entanglements; lock it up safe in the casket or coffin of your selfishness. But in that casket- safe, dark, motionless, airless - it will change. It will not be broken; it will become unbreakable, impenetrable, irredeemable.' C.S. Lewis, The Four Loves.
Christ calls humanity to live with an open and tender heart. We must live a life with a heart that is open, vulnerable and selfless. Christ's heart, like the bread at the last supper, is broken for us.
