  5. 5. “When you hold a lunch or a dinner, do not invite your friends or your brothers or your relatives or your wealthy neighbors, in case they may invite you back and you have repayment.

For you will be repaid at the resurrection of the righteous.” (Lk 14.12-14) Jesus

  7. 7. L'Arche is deeply concerned with the distress of people who suffer injustice and rejection because they have learning disabilities. This concern should impel the Communities of L'Arche to do all they can to defend the rights of people with learning disabilities, to support the creation of places of welcome for them, and to call on our society to become more just and respectful towards them. The Communities of L'Arche want to be in solidarity with the poor of the world, and with all those who take part in the struggle for justice.
  8. 8. I will hold the Christ-light for you, in the night-time of your fear. I will hold my hand out to you, speak the peace you long to hear.
  9. 9. Jean Vanier in Bethlehem: April 2012 Dear Friends, I am in a small monastery of the Greek Catholic rite here in Bethlehem, where there are just 7 contemplative sisters, two of whom used to be at L’Arche. The wall which separates Palestine and Israel crosses through the monastery garden; it is the wall of fear, the wall of hate, a symbol of all the walls which surround our own hearts. L’Arche, here as elsewhere, wants to be a sign of unity and of peace with people of different religions. The peace and unity wells up from the joyful presence of those who are the weakest in our societies,. who draw us together and call us to appreciate and love each other
