Spinkís (1990) narrative of Jean Vanierís life confirms his academic education by key French personalists and Greigís (2017) robust and cogent analysis of French Catholic personalism demonstrates how it influenced Catholic Social Teaching and Vanierís personalist anthropology. Greigís (2017) discussion on time qua time is exciting, innovative and highly relevant to persons who wish to live authentic Christian lives and invites exploration on many topics including human dignity. Human dignity is the fulcrum to personalism and Catholic Social Teaching and this paper uses a mixed methodological approach to explore its nexus with Gabriel Marcel (1963), Vanier, and the wider corpus of LíArche.
