New Online Retreat: "Mercy, A Chance for Life"

Stéphanie Manseau

Given the success of the online retreats entitled, Source of Living Water and In the Heart of the World, which have been available since 2015 on the Congrégation de Notre-Dame website, Sister Marie Azzarello and Sister Rachel Gaudreau are back! As this Jubilee Year of Mercy draws to a close, the online retreat Mercy, A Chance for Life invites us to take time to become more conscious of God’s tender mercy in our lives. The new online retreat will be launched on September 25 with new content added throughout the five-week period. Once the retreat is completed, it will permanently remain on the Congrégation de Notre-Dame’s website for retreatants to return to or to experience at a time best suited to them. Participants are welcome to write to Sister Marie and Sister Rachel.

The retreat, Mercy, A Chance for Life, offers writings and reflections of Marie and Rachel, of Pope Francis and other authors, and invites us to look into our lives and contemplate God. Like the vinedresser and the seemingly barren fig tree (Lk 13:1-9), God wants to give us another chance to bear fruit. The mandalas created by Rachel will also enrich our reflection. The word mandala means “circle.” To enter within the circle of the mandala inspired by the Word of God will nourish the reflection and help us access our fruitfulness so that we may better answer the call to our mission

We wish you a pleasant journey.
