Message from the Director
My dear friends,
During the Year of Mercy we will focus on the theme Mercy Reigns! Pope Francis opens the Bull of Indiction of the Extraordinary Jubilee of Mercy stating, "Jesus Christ is the face of the Father's mercy . . . Mercy has become living and visible in Jesus of Nazareth." The Jubillee Year will commence on December 8, 2015. In the light of this Jubilee year, we will focus on the theme, "Mercy Reigns!" The invitation of Mary at Lasalette, "come near my children, don't be afraid," consists in a close encounter with the face of Christ who is merciful and kind to God's children. The days of prayer and retreats we offer will shed light on how we can draw closer to this God of mercy, live the 'spiritual and corporal works of mercy' and thus become true messengers of mercy in our world today. We will reflect also on Mary as the Mother of Mercy.
May our Blessed Mother draw us closer to her Son Jesus and help us to LIVE THE GOOD NEWS!
Our Lady of La Salette, reconciler of sinners, pray for us who have recourse to you!
Rev. Cyriac C. Mattathilanickal, M.S.
Retreat Center Director
Inspired by Mary’s tears shed at La Salette in 1846, the La Salette Charism is reconciliation.
The La Salette retreat Center endeavors to help people in their search for God as individuals and groups, through retreats, recollections, various programs, youth retreats and spiritual direction.
We offer this place of retreat, rest and prayer, where people can be reconciled with God, others and self in a healing environment of peace, tranquility and prayer.
