Le Barroux - Halfway to Heaven
I have been already to many places on Earth, but there is one single place that I come back with pleasure. The place where you fill like Halfway to Heaven. It is Abbey Le Barroux in south of France. This is the place where you fill and can even touch Sacrum not only in the holy liturgy, but also in the way of life, the day order, the way you eat meals, the way you treat others.
When you spend few days with monks in the monastery, getting up at 3 a.m. to praise God starting with words ‘Domine, labia mea aperies: et os meum annuntiabit laudem tuam’, when you hear 60 guys singing slowly, reverently and in profound bow ‘Gloria Patri et Filio et Spiritui Sancto’, when 9 a.m. is the middle of the day – the time when the solemn high Mass is offered each day, when you go to sleep after the ‘Noctem quietam et finem perfectum’ was sang, your life will never be the same again. When you come back to your daily tasks, your life will be changed. You will simply know that there is a better life waiting for you on the other side of heaven
