Jean has paved the road of my personal journey
I have beautiful memories of Jean Vanier. I met him few times when I was an assistant in L’Arche France in early 2000 and last summer during Gospel of John in Trosly.
I valued Jean’s gentle guidance as I’ve been seeking to discern the stirrings of the Spirit in my life, as I grew in self-awareness to becoming the person I am today. Jean led me in a dialogue with my inner adventure of self-knowing, discernment, and spiritual growth.
No one is born knowing who we are and what we are meant to do in every moment of our lives. Through Jean I found my way along the way, I discovered who I am, what I believe, what my values are, what holds meaning for me and what doesn’t, how to love and how to be loved by others. Through Jean’s readings and witnessed wisdom I reflected on my own humanity, my gifts, weaknesses and anguish; I’ve been transformed by Jean’s actions, words, wisdom, simplicity and sincerity. Because of his L’Arche vision, Jean has paved the road of my personal journey.
