Marianist Monday Meditation

In his letter to the retreat preachers of 1839 Blessed Chaminade expressed the apostolic vision that must imbue the life and channel the energies of each Marianist in words now very familiar.

"Our work is far-reaching; it is magnificent. If it is universal, the reason is that we are missionaries of Mary, who has said to us: "Do whatever he tells you!" Indeed, everyone of us is a missionary. To each of us the Blessed Virgin has given a mandate to work at salvation of all in the world."

Blessed William Joseph Chaminade
