The Heart has its Reasons


“L’Arche is about being with, rather than doing for”.


Jean Vanier has become one of the profound spiritual voices of our time. In this award-winning film we see the L’Arche Community he founded for men and women with learning disabilities, based on the Sermon on the Mount. In a world that places such value on success and winning, L’Arche communities are places where people can take time to explore who they are, not just what they can do. They are places of welcome where people are transformed by an intense experience of community, relationship, disability and difference.
