We only get a certain number of chances of celebrating the Easter mysteries so, each year should take us deeper in understanding how the story of this week releases the meaning of our own life. We share in the sufferings of Christ so we can share in his Resurrection. This year Laurence Freeman will focus on the suffering, which the world is undergoing and how this can transform us into a new and better humanity – if we can become one as prayed we would.
All our events taking place at Bonnevaux offer an opportunity to discover the rich cultural and historical French and European heritage of the 12th-century Abbaye de Bonnevaux, as well as to explore the varied and natural beauty of the land which we cultivate as a model of ecological responsibility.
