Marianist Monday

The founding charism of the Society of Mary(Marianists) is good news because it involves an experience of God (spirituality) and a method to make a difference in the world (approach to service). 

In a famous retreat that Chaminade gave for the Marianist Family in 1821, he said

“. . . God calls us not only to personal sanctification, but to revive the faith in France, in Europe, in the whole world, to preserve the present generation from error. What a noble, vast undertaking! What a holy and generous project! It is most appealing to a soul that seeks the glory of God and the salvation of men. And God has chosen us from among many others.”
