Comments to eBook Man and Woman, God Made Them
Onnell
I learned about this author from a poster on exlegionaries.com, an erstwhile discussion forum repressed by the powerful and litigious Legion of Christ recently in Alexandria City, VA, circuit court.
When comparing "spirituality" and spiritual writers and knowing of my "liberal bias" s/he came up with Vanier. He is the founder and director of L'Arche, an apostolate which creates homes for adults with Learning Problems and Mental Retardation [correct me if I am wrong]
I bought the book because of its title, and it does not disappoint. This is no banal discussion of sex or easy spiritual sublimating cop-outs.
In describing his experience and testimony with people with Mental Impairments he explains how his communities cope with and educate these people's sexual challenges.
He is quite orthodox in his view of Human Sexuality and does not condone masturbation and other practices as often happens in this field. What is wonderful and refreshing is how he places their -our! - sexuality in the human context of caring, affection, love, family and community.
In so doing he gives a refleshing vision of sexuality and love in a Humanistic, Christian, and even Catholic way.
His explanation and testimony of celibacy is a must read for all those who believe in that charism as well as those called to holistic marriage.

Find your own story within these pages, and discover yourself going gently into deeper understanding. Engaging, well-written, highly recommended. Consider reading Vanier's "Becoming Human" as a second to this.
