Posted by on Sep 12, 2016 in Blog | 0 comments

Jean Vanier (1928- ), founder of the L’Arche communities for people with developmental disabilities, is a theologian, philosopher and author. A champion for the rights of people with intellectual disabilities, Vanier has done the truly remarkable – he has demonstrated the value and beauty of imperfection. We will consider some of his insights over the next few Mondays…

  • In the end, the most important thing is not to do things for people who are poor and in distress, but to enter into relationship with them, to be with them and help them find confidence in themselves and discover their own gifts – Jean Vanier
  • Love doesn’t mean doing extraordinary or heroic things. It means knowing how to do ordinary things with tenderness – Jean Vanier
  • To love someone is to show them their beauty, their worth, and their importance – Jean Vanier

Nice chatting…
