In this book, Jean Vanier looks back on his life, the foundation of l'Arche, and particularly on difficult, even traumatic episodes that marked his career. He reveals to the reader with modesty his choices of a life dedicated to others, in celibacy, but outside of a religious vocation. In simple and touching language, he finds the right words to awaken the feeling of being free and happy in the service of others. A Cry is Heard is a call to everyone's commitment to make her life a gift, a meeting with those we did not expect.Jean Vanier, Francois-Xavier Maigre
