CHOOSE LIFE – Jean Vanier, founder of the L’ Arche communities for people with mental disabilities, calls our attention to what the mentally challenged have to offer “normal” people: “They have an incredible gift to bring to our world; they are a source of hope, peace, and perhaps salvation for our wounded world. If we are open to them, if we welcome them, they give us life and lead us to Jesus and the Good News.   Voices for the Unborn, 3/97
