Chaminade: Missionary Apostolic

In many countries of the world, the present situation is very similar to the one that followed the French Revolution of 1789. The Faith is not detroyed by a revolutionary wave today. Nevertheless there is a great disarray in our world: its reference points are often not Christian.  The hustle to get more and more of consumerism, progress and sensationalism rather than service is in contempt of the real nature of humankind. In this pluralistic society, Father Chaminade continues to call us to strongly promote the Faith in today's world. We have Good News to bring to everyone. Father Chaminade is topical. And Mary is the guide on the path of Faith and action. Like the disciples of Cana, she calls us to the mission: "Do whatever he tells you."
