Item description for The Miracle, the Message, the Story: Jean Vanier And L'arche (Hidden Spring) by Kathryn Spink...

In 1964 an extraordinary man started an extraordinary project. Jean Vanier, an ex-navel officer, and son of a Governor General of Canada, bought a little white house in a village north of Paris and invited three men with mental disabilities to share it with him. This was the beginning of l'Arche (The Ark), a special form of community where people who are often rejected and despised by this world can develop their potential to the fullest.

Reviews - What do customers think about The Miracle, the Message, the Story: Jean Vanier And L'arche?

thorough and readable  Sep 4, 2006
I bogged down a bit in the first chapter but then it picked up. I am not done reading yet.

The story of L'Arche communities and one of their founders - Jean Vanier (pronounced zshaw van-yay). This book gives a moving account of the history of L'Arche along with many insights into Vanier and Pere Thomas' thought. (Pere Thomas was Vanier's spiritual father and his influence is still deeply felt in L'Arche).

L'Arche is a federation of communities that are centered around persons with develpmental disabilities (aka cognitive disabilities or mental retardation). L'Arche recognizes not only the need these "poor" have for relationships, community and belonging - but also the need that those who come to "serve" and "live with" them have. Often the "assistants" needs are filled by the "core people." Everyone has gifts to offer and everyone has an important place. Vanier says he was taught quite a lot of important lessons by the men he lived with. Particularly, how to love and be in relationship.

But, for a better idea - read the book. It will spell it out quite well and will keep your interest.
