Then the Divine Goodness, regarding with the eye of His
mercy the hunger and desire of that soul, said:…
“The soul cannot live without love, but always wants to
love something, because she is made of love, and, by love, I
created her…. The affection moved the intellect, saying, as it
were, ‘I will love, because the food on which I feed is love.’”3
—St. Catherine of Siena
“I love you.” Who would ever dare to live life without those words?
Jean Vanier (born 1928) is the founder of L’Arche, an international
federation of group homes both for people with developmental
disabilities and for those who assist them. Several years ago I
remember being struck by a passage in one of his books. It was about
an eight-year-old boy named Armando:
Armando 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 is 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

MADE FOR LOVE, LOVED BY GOD
and say: “I love you.” He has a deep therapeutic influence
In some ways we are all like Armando. Despite our loneliness, our
powerlessness, our brokenness, something drives us and refuses to
die. We are a hunger for love. And when at last that love comes and
finds us, picks us up and holds us close, it transforms us. We become
love for others.
This is why Jesus commands, “Unless you turn and become like
children, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven” (Matthew
18:3). The total receptivity to love modeled by that defenseless young
boy is what equips us best for heaven.
