Maguelonne and Pierre-Alois K.– A Family of friends from Manhattan
"This day was a real source of beauty: the hills with their wonderful view over the Hudson valley, the beautiful wooden houses built by Heart’s Home members and young volunteers, the magnificent works of art in the house, and the graceful talents of the two volunteers Renee and Marian. Our son, Theophile, was dazzled by their smooth and harmonious movements! They were a touching testimony of the beauty of our Lord’s creation.
The friendship of the Heart’s Home members is very dear to us; and each one of them is always full of loving attention towards us, especially towards our children. Also the friendship among all the families and friends that we meet regularly, thanks to Heart’s Home, is touching: all of them are radiant and welcoming, far beyond all differences of backgrounds.
This day of retreat at the ICCC is a kind of homecoming for us: it enables us to rest, away from our spinning urban life, and to become aware of the things that really matter for us as this year begins.
