October 23, One-Day Retreat:
The Mystery of Confession

Georges Rouault, Christ on the Cross

Join us for a one-day retreat on The Mystery of Confession. The inspiring writ­ings and insights of the Swiss Mystic Adrienne von Speyr (1902-1967) guide us into a renewed under­standing of this sacra­ment. In their utmost con­crete­ness, where the Holy Trinity, the Cross and our daily lives prove deeply con­nected. Hans Urs von Balthasar regarded Adrienne’s the­ology of con­fes­sion a major gift for the world of our time... It’s time we opened it.

Hosted by Father Thierry de Roucy, founder of Heart’s Home, this retreat will be given by father Paul Anel and Dr. Matthew Sutton- author a of a noted PhD dis­ser­ta­tion on Adrienne von Speyr.

  • When: Saturday, October 23, from 10:15 am to 5:30 pm
  • Register online before Wednesday, October 20.

Possibility to stay overnight at the ICCC. For more info, con­tact Sr. Blandine.

"Purity and Confession are so close to each other because the two are one in the Cross. The Cross is the great, uni­versal and defini­tive con­fes­sion: the con­fes­sion of all sins... The Son no longer put any dis­tance between him­self and sin, and laden with this sin as his own he goes to the Father. But that is con­fes­sion. This horror comes to an end with the Father: in abso­lu­tion the dark­ened soul glows in the grace and mercy of God."
