Program

Before Nelson Mandela left prison he said "As I stand before the door to my freedom, I realize that if I do not leave my pain, anger and bitterness behind me, I will still be in prison".

Self-imprisonment is worse than that imposed. How many are in self-inflicted pains today for lack of forgiveness. How many of us have imprisoned ourselves inside the walls of anger and bitterness. Holding grudges does not make you strong, it makes you bitter. Forgiveness does not make you weak, it sets you free.

Forgiveness is a journey of letting go and finding a new way of being. It is a liberation of the past towards a new freedom… We will walk a part of this journey together in prayer, in listening to the word, in sharing some days of life together …

During this session, there will be encounters, lectures, times of individual and group prayer, meditation and a possibility to join Eucharistic celebrations. You will also be able to take part in evening celebrations and sharing sessions.
