Léandre left us a message at the end of the magnificent retreat he preached. He largely resumed the message already left in volume 3 of “For the Happiness of My Own, My Chosen Ones.” The following echoes are just a few of the many testimonials of gratitude that the sixty or so participants wrote to us.
“This house has a very important mission for France and beyond. It is the cradle of the Civilization of Love. The three priests, Father Jean-Marie, Father Pierre and Father Theo are priests according to the Heart of Jesus. Their mission is to accompany people who come here to taste the Love of God.
The Lord takes care of the smallest details of this house. He gives the necessary help. All have an important role and while the person gives, it is simultaneously transformed by Love. The obvious proof is what happened to Bernadette and Marie-Dominique, beings of love. I leave with the certainty that this is just the beginning of the incredible action of God in this house. I am in thanksgiving of praise and gratitude. “Because love loves you, you become love.” Léandre Lachance 18.8.09
Roc-Estello is for me a glimpse of paradise, the retreat is too short … Jacqueline
Be magnified, Lord, for the great graces you offered me during this retreat at Roc-Estello. A big thank you to all the team of Roc-Estello, priests and laity volunteers for their radiance and generosity. Françoise
A last thanksgiving alleluia before descending the “Thabor” Isabelle
Let’s build on the Rock … Thank you … What happiness! Nathalie and Laurent
Thank you, Lord, for inviting us to your cradle of the civilization of love, thanks to Mother Mary for lulling us so tenderly. Marie-Hélène
So much Love … The Spirit breathes, the fire is on, it’s up to us to continue with courage, wisdom and perseverance on the way … thank you, Lord, for giving me so beautiful brothers and sisters! Brigitte
Thank you for this stay, for the talks with our priests and with the Léandre. Thank you for the book of Father Pierre on Job. He helped me a lot, as if I was waiting for this book … Good and fruitful mission! Marie Claire
It would take a whole book to give thanks for all these wonderful “things” or rather “graces” of which I was filled. Following real forgiveness, I was able to let myself be loved. Thank you to all of you, Fathers Jean-Marie and Pierre, Léandre and all the “Chosen Ones” of whom I have been a part since I know that God loves me. Bernadette
Roc-Estello! Firmed by the rock of the Word and guided in the soft light of Mary, our star, we have known here five blessed days, five as the bread offered by the young boy for the multiplication of the loaves (see the tabernacle of Roc-Estello) . Thanks to Fathers Jean-Marie and Pierre, to all the team that makes the house live and “vibrate”, vibration of love, jubilation! Thank you to those who prepared these delicious dishes, with such delicacy. We are coming down from Thabor to the valley where our labors await us, but with the teaching of Jesus transmitted by Léandre, so patiently, so firmly and in joy … We want to give our “yes each day ” to the Lord, in docility to the Spirit. Peace and Joy! Françoise and Paul
Thank you to our wonderful priests, living representatives of the living Trinity in us … thank you to these three hearts of love for making us alive in God. Patrice
Long live the heart of “Grandfather” in Jesus of our dear friend Léandre and a huge thank you to heaven for our devoted fathers and friends. Yveline
At twenty, we danced crazy rocks … we were married at the age of 22 with the gospel “Bâtir sur le Rock”. At sixty this year, we try to rely on the Rock while dancing for the Estello. Thank you to Roc-Estello. Daniel and Monique
Thank you very much to Fathers Jean-Marie and Pierre, we have discovered the civilization of love, graces and gifts offered by a chosen of God, Léandre Lachance. We have found, on the occasion of 18 years of marriage, a new path to the sky, with our children, in unity. And also, the Lord has given us a spiritual father for our couple: Father Jean-Marie. Alleluia! Pascale
Roc, solid, Rock of Rome that touches the Heavens, source where Moses brings out water … Estello, Star, Motherhood divine, our mother … What a joy to have lived heaven at Roc-Estello with Léandre, Father Jean- Marie and Pierre. Thank you Lord, thank you Mary. Father Elie Khaty, Lebanon.
Roc-Estello is and will be a high place of spirituality, it brings and will bring me what I have been looking for forever … Thank you for the well-orchestrated and very warm welcome. G. Chapus
