‘Geneva, May 1945. I was dancing in the streets of Geneva, with crowds of others, full of joy and relief. The war in Europe was over, and Switzerland had managed to keep out of it and to save its independence and freedom. I was half way through my first year of medical studies in Geneva. I enjoyed my studies, played the organ in the cathedral in my free time and took an active part in the life of the university. In spite of this, in 1945, I was not satisfied with life – on two levels. The first had to do with my religious life, the second with a barely conscious longing to do something “for the world”.’
