3rd Week of Lent – Mutuality

3rd Week  of Lent


Jean Vanier Community and Growth, p142

A community is only truly a body when the majority of its members is making the transition from ‘the community for myself’ to ‘myself for the community,” when each person’s heart is opening to all the others without any exception. … It means answering their call and their deepest needs. It means feeling and suffering with them – weeping when they weep, rejoicing when they rejoice. … It is living in each other, taking refuge in each other.

The Struggle For Justice- John August Swanson


Jean Vanier on the evolution of L’Arche

  • How are you tender?

  • How are you open to the tenderness of those around you?

  • How have other members of community called you to change?
