Message from Stephan Posner and Stacy Cates-Carney,
L'Arche International Leaders

Dear friends,

We are deeply saddened to announce the passing of Jean Vanier.

Jean passed away peacefully today Tuesday, May 7 at 2:10 am in Paris surrounded by some relatives. In recent days, while remaining very present, he had quickly declined.

We all know Jean's place in the history of L'Arche and Faith and Light and in the personal stories of a great many of us. Jean's life has been one of exceptional fruitfulness. First and foremost we wish to give thanks for that.

In his last message, a few days ago, Jean said:
“I am deeply peaceful and trustful. I’m not sure what the future will be but God is good and whatever happens it will be the best. I am happy and give thanks for everything. My deepest love to each one of you”
