FROM JEAN VANIER

Short inspirational passages delivered to your email box each day that will help give balance, perspective and spiritual depth to your day. Drawn largely from Vanier's best selling books, including Becoming Human, Finding Peace, Community and Growth and Made for Happiness.

Solitude

Solitude does not separate me from others; it helps me love them more tenderly, realistically and attentively. I begin to distinguish between the false solitude which is a flight from others to be alone with egoism, sadness or a bruised sensitivity, and the true solitude which is communion with God and others.

Beside being the founder of L'Arche, Jean Vanier is a 21st century writer and social visionary and recipient of many humanitarian awards including the Companion of the Order of Canada. MacLean's Magazine calls him "a Canadian who inspires the world." In a number of best-selling books, Jean Vanier reflects profoundly on what it is to be fully human in our world today.
