The Heart of L'Arche describes the spirituality of the ecumenical and interfaith international federation founded by Jean Vanier in 1964, in France. The book has been in demand since it was first published 1995, and this updated edition was revised by Vanier himself. Now in his mid-eighties, he looks back on almost 50 years of the spirituality of L'Arche. Readers will discover the spirit that keeps Vanier's dream alive and thriving in a world where people with disabilities are often ignored or seen as a burden on society. With simplicity and conviction, the author shows how a life shared with people who have intellectual disabilities calls us to selflessness and risk. The vulnerability that is so much a part of their lives reveals our own limits and forces us to ask questions that can lead to profound liberation.
