Watch: Funeral of Jean Vanier

The Requiem Mass of Jean Vanier took place this afternoon. A note on the L'Arche International website reads:

"Jean Vanier wanted a simple funeral, celebrated in the privacy of his community of Trosly-Breuil.

Respect for his wishes and complex logistical issues prevent us from welcoming all those who would like to attend the ceremony. To ensure that, as many people as possible, in France and abroad can follow the celebration live, L'Arche asked KTO to broadcast this event.

We thank you for your understanding.
