Marianist Monday

Above Brother Eric from East Africa, Brother Michael from Rome and Brother Thierry from West Africa share dinner at Founders Hollow yesterday.

Each year the Brothers of the Province of Meribah gather at Founders Hollow for their annual retreat. This year the Province focused on Fr. James Martin's book, My Life with the Saints. St. Therese and Thomas Merton were the key figures for discussion today. Under discussion today was also, What was your call to religious life like? Was it hearing voices or seeing visions? Or was it just a simple attraction? Maybe it was a heartfelt desire or a sort of emotional pull. Maybe it was the happy inability to think of anything else?

How are you responding to your call to holiness?
