The Holy Father gives thanks to God for the beautiful witness of Faith and Light. His Holiness prays that the joy you bring to one another through the friendship that you share may shine brightly for all to see For the Holy Father Pope Francis, Angelo Becciu, Substitute "A tale of rare human and spiritual density. It is proper to thank these "two disciples" Marie-Hélène and Jean, for having written this sort of gospel where we see how much providence watches over those who surrender themselves totally" Jean-Marie Guénois, Le Figaro "I just finished this superb book, Never Again Alone, which retraces the adventure of Faith and Light. Providence has inspired Marie-Hélène Mathieu and Jean Vanier through all these years and the fruits exceed all expectation. Philippe Pozzo di Borgo, inspiration for the film, Intouchables It is 1971; persons with intellectual disabilities and their families are still very marginalized in society and in the Church. Jean Vanier and Marie-Hélène Mathieu are going to break open a way for them in launching the Faith and Light pilgrimage to Lourdes-an incredible event and the improbable birth of an international movement that has grown in 80 countries with 1,500 communities that meet regularly, bringing together 50,000 members. This is a passionate and often poignant account. It has been translated into Italian, Portuguese, English, Spanish and Polish.

One of our deepest human desires and needs is to live in peace. We all yearn for peace, but what is it exactly? How do we find it, and how can we bring peace to our lives and our communities? Jean Vanier reflects on recent world events, identifying the sources of conflict and fear within and among individuals, communities, and nations that thwart us in our quest for peace. Peace is not just the work of governments or armies or diplomats, he argues, but the task of each one of us. We can all become makers of peace. We can do our part. And though it's easy to be a love of peace and much more difficult to be a worker for peace, Vanier shows us that ordinary people, unknown and unrecognized, are transforming our world little by little, finding peace in our neighborhoods, and lighting the way to change.
