Jean Vanier – The Wisdom of Tenderness

This Canadian philosopher and Catholic social innovator founded L’Arche, a community centered around people with mental disabilities that has now become a global movement. To many, he is simply one of the wise men in our world today — an icon of lived compassion. We speak about his understanding of humanity and God that has been shaped across a fascinating lifetime by the likes of Aristotle, Mother Teresa, and people who would once have been locked away from society.

One of my favorite podcasts, “Speaking of Faith.” This episode was especially touching where Jean Vanier speaks about his experience with the “Vulnerability of God.” I hope you enjoy it.
