Can you give us a brief overview of your personal background?

In a word, university life and monastic life. Or I could say Parisian life and Saharan life. After finishing my studies I became chaplain at Paris' Sorbonne University, then a monk at St. Gervais church in Paris after having lived as a hermit for two years in the Sahara desert, in Assekrem, above Tamanrasset, in the steps of brother Charles de Foucauld. That was the turning point of my life.
