Happy new year 2016!14 december 2015
The International Coordinating team of Faith and Light, The Board of directors, Marie-Hélène Mathieu and Jean Vanier and the international secretariat team wish you a joyful Christmas from the bottom of our hearts. Like Lou Ravi figure in the creche, may our hearts remain full of wonder throughout 2016.
- This year, we are all invited by “lou ravi” to go hand in hand and marvel at the infant Jesus in the manger. The Provençale manger is one of very many ways of praising the child God. All people on Earth have conceived, in their own cultures, special traditions to celebrate this extraordinary event: And the Word became flesh and lived among us (Jn 1, 14).
- “The people who walked in darkness have seen a great light; upon those who dwelt in the land of gloom a light has shone.” (Is 9,1).
Yes, Jesus is this great light that shines on our world. He is the Way that leads us to the total realization of the person, the Truth that sets us free and the Life that is given to us in fullness.
