Marianist Perpetual Profession

Pray for the Canonization of Blessed William Joseph Chaminade

"Fervor consists: 1) In fulfilling all our duties well; 2) In performing supererogatory works; 3) In turning to advantage every opportunity for good, as a skillful merchant does for profit; 4) In employing our time well; 5) In performing our actions in the right spirit, and as well as we can. Since fervor is much more an interior than an exterior quality, we must particularly try to produce in the depth of our hearts most ardent acts of the love of God."
Blessed William Joseph Chaminade
