Spink’s (1990) narrative of Jean Vanier’s life confirms his academic education by key French personalists and Greig’s (2017)robust and cogent analysis of French Catholic personalismdemonstrates how it influenced Catholic Social Teaching andVanier’s personalist anthropology. Greig’s (2017) discussion ontime qua time is exciting, innovative and highly relevant topersons who wish to live authentic Christian lives and invitesexploration on many topics including human dignity. Humandignity is the fulcrum to personalism and Catholic SocialTeaching and this paper uses a mixed methodologicalapproach to explore its nexus with Gabriel Marcel (1963),Vanier, and the wider corpus of L’Arche.
