Thank you for sharing with me the vision of your new international center. By reason of the Incarnation, Christians invariably become attuned to the importance of place and the effectiveness of the right symbol.  This is the way the inner message become outer and the hidden message becomes both visible and attractive. I feel this is happening and will happen at Bonnevaux. I fully congratulate the World Community for embarking on the project of this new center for its whole community and for all who are seeking depth and peace. It is a truly beautiful place and I am sure it will communicate the beauty of the peace of contemplation. Having an ancient monastic origin adds another dimension to the spirit of the place. Talking with you I know that all contemplatives will feel welcome here and I hope all friends of WCCM can fully support this great venture.
