THE GREAT FRIENDSHIP — Jean Vanier and Henri Nouwen: The Great Friendship was presented March 10 by guest lecturer Michael Higgins of Toronto at St. Thomas More College in Saskatoon. “The friendship of Jean Vanier and Henri Nouwen is one of the key spiritual friendships of the last century,” said Higgins. “The philosopher and the psychologist had much in common: they shared a ministry of tenderness with the disabled; they advocated relentlessly for the curative and transformative power of genuine community; they stood for the perduring witness of Christian humanism.” Higgins shared with the STM audience an exploration of this friendship and how through L’Arche relationships the two discovered an enlightening path to holiness.
