Eruption to Hope

Paulist Press
1971

Sharing is the theme of this book. Eruption to Hope is the result of a collection of talks given to international groups, businessmen and educators, but it is of vital interest to individuals as well. Vanier believes that our civilization will fall to ruin unless we share. If we share, then goodwill and love will give way to an “eruption of hope”. A sense of hope is the cause and effect of the young person discovering a true personal morality, writes Vanier, a morality of love which surges from the inner being and flows like a source of living water. It is this morality or spirituality which offers real inner freedom and eases all fear.
