Benedict Vanier

  • A Humble Monk with a Famous Name

    Benedict Vanier, the son of Canada’s Governor-General Georges Vanier, lived a life of contemplation in relative obscurity as a Trappist monk and priest for almost seven decades. Yet at his funeral Saturday, he was remembered as a genial spiritual advisor who was both pithy and profound. Father Vanier was 88 when he died at l’Abbaye Val Notre Dame in St. Jean de Mantha on May 13. His brother Jean, the renowned philosopher and founder of L’Arche, was with him when he died but a previous commitment prevented him from attending the funeral.
