Abstract:

This account of a spiritual pilgrimage is remarkable for its restraint. The son of one who had undertaken important responsibilities in the service of his country, and who had been granted its highest honour, might well have used his own remarkable gifts of expression to portray his father's virtues and abilities. He does not do so. Instead, he gives us here vignettes of the impressions General Vanier made on others, some insights into his inner struggles as shown in private jottings, and leads us to see what became the ruling passion of his life, namely to work 'that God's will may be done'.
