Who We Are

Each person is loved by God:

Faith and Light is founded on the belief that each person with an intellectual disability is fully a person with all the rights of a human being: above all the right to be loved, recognized and respected from himself or herself and in the choices he/she makes; the right also to receive whatever help is necessary in order to grow at every level, spiritual and human. Faith and Light also believes that every person, above-bodied or disabled, is equally loved by God ant hat Jesus lives in them, even if the person concerned can barely express this. Faith and Light believes that every person, even the most disabled, is called to deepen his or her life in Jesus, to receive all the spiritual richness from his/her Church, sacraments, liturgical traditions, etc. He/she is called to be a source of grace and peace for the whole community, and also for the Churches and for all humanity.

Faith and Light believes in the words of Saint Paul: “God chose what is foolish in the world to shame the wise; God chose what is weak in the world to shame the strong.” (1 Corinthians ch. 1, v. 27).
