I lived in Tegucigalpa, Honduras, and spent some time with the l'Arche community at Suyapa, which is one of the poorest barrios of the city. It is also a sign of hope for the Honduran people, for it is the site of the shrine to an apparition of the Virgin Mary to the poor. At l'Arche I learned to listen with the heart, in a way that seminary and clinical training never touched. All of us deserve our love and care and concern in our struggle for the common good, that no one should be left out, irrespective of our religion, race, sex, income, or handicap.
