Blessed William Joseph Chaminade, the founder of the Family of Mary, takes the good of the French Revolution: liberty, equality, and fraternity, and places them into a Christian context. They beget a community of faith, centered on faith of the heart, which is mission‐oriented, founded on a spirit of family where all have a role and all roles are interrelated in complementarily.
Mary is the summary of all this: Be as she was. Do as she did. Mary is our possession and we are the possession of Mary who sends us in mission to “Do whatever He tells you.”
