“Some weeks ago, we responded to an invitation to attend classes on metaphysics at the ICCC. What a funny idea, isn’t it? Crossing half the globe to attend classes in a lost place in the American woods!
But, in fact, metaphysics speaks to the heart. And because in this place - which we want a Center of Compassion, where every man may be celebrated in his dignity - I can go back to the essential, I have, thus, the opportunity to ask myself once more the right questions. Metaphysics helps my spirit to step out of its own concepts, to relearn what I thought I already knew and to be able to contemplate the whole of reality, the whole reality of Being, of every being. Metaphysics gives humanity back to men and allows me to stay open-eared to Love. To experience all of this, I really need to be in this place: a place of rest and silence; a place where every detail is taken care of, where all calls to beauty! And when I go up the few miles that lead me to the shrine of Our Lady of Compassion, I’m not alone: a multitude, in spirit, joins me. It’s the life of all of our friends, of every Heart’s Home family member, of all those who are close to us, of those who are simple and humble of heart, that I bring with to the feet of the Virgin of Sorrows. In this place, my mind awakens to the contemplation of all things, of all Being: In His hand, I find myself loved.
When will the next course session at the ICCC take place?”
