Marianist Moment

Marianist Brother Peter pauses at the bust of Blessed Chaminade
during the World Youth Day pilgrimage

Blessed William Joseph Chaminade, the founder of the Marianists, gave us the Five Silences as preliminary to any real religious life. They consist of Silence of Words, Silence of Signs, Silence of the Memory, Silence of the Imagination, and Silence of the Passions.

Each Silence can lead one to perfection. Do they work for you?
