‘An Incredible Capacity’

‘Another thing that people with disabilities have revealed to me is their incredible capacity for creating community and bringing people together. Experience has shown that one person, all alone, can never heal another. A one-to-one situation is not a good situation. It is important to bring broken people into a community of love, a place where they feel accepted and recognized in their gifts and have a sense of belonging. That is what wounded people need and want most.’

– Jean Vanier, From Brokenness to Community, p.28
