FR. JEAN LEFEUVRE has left us
Fr. Lefeuvre was born in France, on July 5, 1922. He entered the Society of Jesus in 1940, and was ordained to the priesthood in 1952 at St. Ignatius Church, Shanghai by Msgr. Ignatius Kung Pin-Mei. In his book, "Les enfants dans la ville" he has left a vivid description of this troubled period for the Church in China.
After arriving to Taiwan Fr Lefeuvre became a founding member of the Taipei Ricci Institute and worked closely with Fr Yves Raguin. He became a world authority on oracular inscriptions, an, later on, on bronze inscriptions as well. He published several catalogues of oracular inscriptions as well as several learned articles and research tools on this very specialized field of knowledge. Fr Lefeuvre was probably the most important collaborator and author of the "Grand Ricci" dictionary, in charge of its etymological section. He leaves a completed manuscript of a Dictionary of Bronze Inscriptions, which will be published after the due process of revision.
He was also a pastor, founder of several Christian communities, and exercised an in-depth influence on the Taiwanese church. In the "Aurora Center", which he directed for decades, he was the first to welcome Taizé-style prayer groups.
Fr Lefeuvre is mourned by members and friends of the Taipei Ricci Institute. His absence will be deeply felt by all of us.
