Heaven’s Joy (Bonheur Du Ciel) Association is a spiritual apostolic, charitable and social, non-political and non-profit association, duly registered before the Ministry of Interior and Municipalities and licensed according to memorandum and notification No. 396 dated March 27, 2008. Its founder is Father Majdi Al Alawi belief that love is the drug for each wounded, hungry, thirsty, oppressed, addicted, is up.
Some of the association’s activities include but are not limited to:
Drug Addicts Treatment Centers ( Karyet el ensen ):
Religious-Organiziation: The “Bonheur du Ciel” association (sa3adat al sama) is an organization which accommodates drug addicted young men. We believe that The Christ is the greatest healer, that’s why we use the “Christotherapy”. There are only 1-7% of people succeeding in civil rehabilitation centers. In centers like ours there’s 70% of success. The therapy takes 12 months to be accomplished. We believe that The Christ is the greatest healer, that’s why we use the “Christotherapy”.
*There is no entry fee: nor are there any fixed fees; each family collaborates according to its capacity.
The beauty of Christian life To those we welcome, we propose a way of life that is simple, familial, disciplined, based on rediscovering the essential gifts of prayer and work of true friendship, of sacrifice, and of the living faith in Jesus. The spirituality of Community is profoundly Eucharistic. We alternate moments of prayer (Rosary, Eucharistic Adoration…), of work, and of deep sharing of our own life in front of the Word of God and the brothers, of fun and celebration. We believe that a Christian life in its simplicity and fullness is the real answer to every restless heart, and that the meeting with God gives a rebirth to hope.
Young Men Difficulty For the men who wish to enter, some preliminary meetings during which one is made aware of the reality and the style of life of the Community, and where we verify the desire of the young man to change, learning about his real problems and assessing if we are able to help him.
We do not take in persons with psychological problems (schizophrenia, or serious mental disturbances): our experience has taught us that our demanding and very regulated style of life, does not help such persons to resolve their problems, and neither are we able to provide them the constant special medical aid that they need.
*Sacrifice: We don't drink (alcohol of course..). We only watch nice movies, tele lumiere or sporting games together. We listen to clean music. We cannot receive phone calls for a while (usually 3 months) unless it’s an absolute necessity.
All this so that one can concentrate totally on himself without running away and without external distractions, to allow this time to be fruitful for life. Through this, we experience that real joy does not come from things we have, does not depend on things around us, but on who we are inside. Each and every one of us before had everything, but we were unhappy: today, in a simple, clean, and true life, we have joy in the heart and the will to live! The schedule that Community proposes is the same for everyone, and that is because the goal to attain is the same for everyone, to learn how to live our life with serenity in the light of the Word of God and of a true relationship with the brothers and sisters of the Community.
