Jean Vanier and L’Arche friends meet Pope Francis

Jean Vanier, along with a small delegation of core members and assistants and the Leaders of L’Arche International, met with Pope Francis  on March 21, 2014 to celebrate World Down Syndrome Day and the 50th Anniversary of L’Arche. Our society very often views the weak as people to be marginalized or rejected, even thrown away. However, both Jean Vanier and Pope Francis approach them with tenderness, kindness and love, recognizing them as human beings with important lessons to teach the rest of us.
