Remembering Jean Vanier- An Appreciation by David Ford
Jean Vanier was one of the most loved and appreciated religious figures worldwide. Anyone who knew him in person would understand why this soft-spoken, yet profound, engaged and active person could win the hearts of many. Philosopher and theologian, he was also the initiator of L’arche, an international federation of communities, in 37 countries, working for people with developmental disabilities.

We are happy to share his appreciation of Jean Vanier.
