Love Heals Body and Soul

“Amando is an amazing eight-year-old boy…

Amando cannot walk or talk and is very small for his age.  He came to us from an orphanage where he had been abandoned.  He no longer wanted to eat because he no longer wanted to live cast off from his mother.  He was desperately thin and was dying of lack of food. After a while in our community where he found people who held him, loved him, and wanted him to live, he gradually began to eat again and to develop in a remarkable way. He still cannot walk or talk or eat by himself, his body twisted and broken, and he has a severe mental disability, but when you pick him up, his eyes and his whole body quiver with joy and excitement and say, ”I love you.”  He has a deep therapeutic influence on people.

What many people do not always know is that they have a deep well inside of them, if that well is tapped, springs of life and of tenderness flow forth. It has revealed to each person that these waters are there and that they can rise up from each one of us and flow over people, giving them life and a new hope.”

Jean Vanier is the founder of L’Arche, an international network of communities for the mentally disabled.
