Hidden Treasure

It would be dangerous to deepen a spirituality that did not have a good anthropological basis. We have a treasure in L’Arche, people with intellectual disability reveal important elements of our human nature that are often hidden in people who have developed their intellectual and manual capacities. We have to reflect on these elements that show what it means to grow and develop as a human being, and what we need in order to live and deepen our humanity.
