A friend of L’Arche underlines the qualities of life shared in community rather than in a relationship of caring versus being cared for.
“I promise you, you have something…. “The depth of compassion for one another, the depth of simplicity, the depth of openness, love and welcome that exists in L'Arche: no-one has it – no one. “You are the living communities of peace. You are the living example and role model of what I believe the world is hungry for.” “L’Arche has a simple message for our time: focus on relationships. “Welcome the poor and the rejected. Create communities where relationships are the highest priority. Create communities where each person’s gift is valued and celebrated. Welcome the least and as a result, discover the best in all." Tim Shriver, Disability Rights Activist and Chair of the Special Olympics Committee In L'Arche
