About the Author

is a Jungian analyst, and was a friend of Therese for many years. She has written ten books and was the English translator of Jean Vanier's Signs of the Times.


`There is still much that we can learn from Therese's approach to working with people with disabilities and to others who are too often pushed to society's margins.' -- Jean Vanier 'Therese's life was sheer grace to those who met her and knew her. This beautiful tribute speaks of a life of service to Jesus Christ, and captures how the light of Christ shone through her in her deep faithfulness, tireless work for justice and presence in love to those most vulnerable.' -- Most Revd and Rt Hon Justin Welby, Archbishop of Canterbury `This life of Therese Vanier is truly inspiring. Her commitment to the sick and dying, to those with intellectual disabilities and to Christian unity shine out from every page. Her story offers real hope for the renewal of humanity.' -- Cardinal Vincent Nichols `In this precious volume we encounter a pioneer of great intelligence, grace and humility as she walks the path through experiences of both light and darkness. Those who knew Therese, will find themselves in her company once again; those who did not, will come to feel they did, and all will discover more than one cause for personal reflection and profound gratitude.' -- Balfour Mount OC QC
