‘Minding the Gap’

‘The story of L’Arche begins with a huge gap of injustice and pain. It is the gap between the so-called ”normal” world and the people who have been pushed aside, put into institutions, excluded from our societies because they are weak and vulnerable. This gap is place of invitation in which we call people to respond.’

Jean Vanier, Living Gently in a Violent World, p.29
