Marianist Monday

The seal of the Society of Mary

Marianist Religious Poverty 

Trusting in God alone, we respond
to the call of Jesus
to leave everything and follow him.

The life of poverty frees us
so that Christ can take full possession
of our lives, and through us
reach out to others.

Thus we hope to bear witness
to dependence on the Lord,
the primacy of his kingdom,
Province of Meribah visits Blessed Chaminade's gravesite

and the redemptive character of gospel poverty.

By the vow of poverty,
we submit the use and disposition
of our material goods
to the discernment of superiors.
