"The Vision of Peace points out the possibilities of faith, hope, and nonviolent love, not only in Northern Ireland, but throughout the world. Mairead Corrigan Maguire is the true prophet of peace."
"Out of the painful depths of the violence among her own people, Mairead Corrigan Maguire has come to a profound vision of a peace that is possible for all peoples. . . . Anyone on the journey of peace will find sustenance and challenge in The Vision of Peace."
--Walter F. Sullivan, Bishop of Richmond
"In our increasingly small and interdependent world there is an ever more urgent need to bring about genuine world peace. We each have to take responsibility as best as we can within our won sphere of activity. I therefore greatly admire the efforts being made by my friend Mairead Corrigan Maguire towards spreading the message of peace."
--from the Preface by the Dalai Lama
"Mairead Corrigan Maguire has amazed me as I have watched her with growing admiration. . . . It is because she has tried to make a difference that the world can give thanks today that there has been a Good Friday Agreement, and that peace is being given a real chance in Northern Ireland."
--from the Foreword by Archbishop Desmond Tutu
