In 1964 Jean Vanier, a philosopher and former naval officer, moved into a dilapidated house in France with two companions and founded the first L'Arche community. In time this grew into an international network of communities in which people with developmental disabilities and those who assist them share their lives together. Vanier's message of compassion, community, and his stress on the dignity and value of human life, has struck a universal chord. This collection of Vanier's essential writings, published to mark his 80th birthday, reflects the great discovery of his life: `that we are healed by the poor and the weak, that we are transformed by them if we enter into relationship with them, that the weak and the vulnerable have a gift to give to our world...they call us together, in unity and peace, to build community.'
