4th Week of Lent
L’Arche Spirituality Learning Guide, Chapter 3
Forgiveness and celebration are at the heart of community. These are the two faces of love.
Celebration is a communal experience of joy, a song of thanksgiving. We celebrate the fact of being together; we give thanks for the gifts we have been given.
Celebration nourishes us, restores hope, and brings us the strength to live with the suffering and difficulties of everyday life.
Celebration – John August Swanson
