A Blessed Day in Bonnevaux


The 21st of November was a memorable day for our Community at Bonnevaux, in France and globally. With the Archbishop of Poitiers, the Prior of the monastery of Liguge,  Sandrine Vinay ( French National Coordinator) the icon of John Cassian ‘written’ for Bonnevaux by Odile van der Hoff was blessed and installed in the small chapel. Meditators from France, Switzerland, Spain, Germany, the UK and Ireland were present and messages came from worldwide, read by Jose Pype, national coordinator from Belgium.

The day was warm and sunny and this seemed to illumine the sense of Bonnevaux as a place of peace and hope both locally grounded and globally extended.
