"I want to preach the Gospel with my life" Charles de Foucauld often said. He was convinced that the most effective method of preaching the Gospel was to live it. . . .

Nazareth is the long period of separation, prayer and sacrifice. It is a time of silence, of intimate life with God; the time of long solitude, purification, understanding men, and knowing the value of detachment; the things that matter to a Christian. From Nazareth we will learn how to live the Gospel, to be apostles.
