Georges and Pauline Vanier

Full Product Description

Georges and Pauline Vanier were the parents of Jean Vanier, the cofounder of the L Arche communities. They lived an intensely spiritual life, influenced mainly by the Carmelite tradition. "Georges and Pauline Vanier: Mercy Within Mercy" is the warmly told story of their life together through World War II and the second half of the twentieth century, drawing on many letters and journals by Georges and Pauline themselves and those closest to them. An incredible thirst for God can be seen in the lives of this couple, who were always striving in spite of (and through) human imperfection. The excerpts from letters and journals in this volume show a rare example of the contemplative life and struggles in prayer of an active and prominent married couple. The Vanier story is unique in that it forms a direct link back to the spiritual teaching that includes St. Therese and the Carmelite tradition in its emphasis on simplicity, trust in God s love, and self-abandonment to the mercy of God. After Pauline s death in 1991, an investigation began into the possible introduction of their cause for beatification as a married couple."

Georges and Pauline Vanier by Mary Frances Coady was published by Liturgical Press in August 2016. The ISBN for Georges and Pauline Vanier is 9780814646588.
