Georges and Pauline Vanier

Mercy Within Mercy
  • By Mary Frances Coady
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.
