Bordeaux - Blessed Chaminade 1

The whole Family of Mary is mindful of Blessed William Joseph Chaminade since the investigation of the miracle attributed to him has been completed. His presence is particularly felt in Bordeaux, France. The Marianists have held a presence in this area since the earliest days of our Founder.

Two of our Brothers are attending the International Horizons program for Marianists this summer. Brother Peter and Brother Benjamin have met with other Marianists from around the world to capture the spirit and charism of our Founder.

The Horizons participants were able to tour Blessed Chaminade's room in Bordeaux, France. Here in this video, Fr. David Fleming, former Superior General of the Society of Mary, gives a brief tour of Blessed Chaminade’s room in Bordeaux, France.

With the recent closing of the investigation of Blessed Chamnade's miracle in St. Louis we are in exciting times. We are able to share with our Brothers their experiences of Bordeaux and continue to pray for the Canonization of Blessed Chamiande.

Enjoy the video!
