2016: New Year’s Greeting
“The suffering we endure gives rise to a message of hope. The will to overcome this suffering together awakens the hope that lies in our hearts, our souls, our lives — an unbounded hope that we will be able to stand up and be fully recognized as people. This hope has burst into the clarity of daylight. Together we can offer it as a message to the world.”
— Joseph Wresinski, 1980
We wish you a year illuminated by this hope that inspires us to find new ways to create peace in our communities.
Diana Skelton, Isabelle Pypaert Perrin, Jacqueline Plaisir and Jean Toussaint.
