Victor Lelièvre, un homme branché sur...
An amazing capacity for listening; he was inhabited with presence.
A man of the positive, he finds and highlights the good that he finds in the person he sees.
He is a master in the art of welcoming those who seek the help of his ministry. He has a surprising capacity for listening.
An amazing sense of availability to others.
His prayer life is composed of long hours devoted to mental prayer and spiritual reading, early in the morning.
His zeal for the salvation of souls is seen in his preaching, his ministry of confession, and his spiritual direction.
His is a missionary’s heart.
His marian heart is an expression of a filial, real, and faithful love for the Virgin Mary.
His humility is real, practical, and simple.
Inhabited with an invincible hope, he never surrenders to defeatism or sadness.
A man of peace, he continually searches for what is creative of unity and fraternity within persons and groups.
His being is rooted in a deep and mature faith.
