- How Jean Vanier broke my heart and saved my life
Many of us came to know of Jean Vanier through the work and writings of Henri Nouwen.
Damaris wrote recently that “the simplest, hardest, and most effective means of redeeming Christianity in our age [is] a humble life of service.”
Jean Vanier may be one of the greatest examples of that in my lifetime.
May light eternal rest upon him.
