The whole Family of Mary is mindful of Blessed William Joseph Chaminade since the 200 anniversary of the foundation of the Daughters of Mary Immaculate has begun. The 200 anniversary of the Society of Mary is approaching quickly. His presence is particularly felt in Bordeaux, France. The Marianists have held a presence in this area since the earliest days of our Founder.
Several years ago two of our Brothers attended the International Horizons program for Marianists. There they met with other Marianists from around the world to capture the spirit and charism of our Founder.
The participants were able to tour Blessed Chaminade's room in Bordeaux, France. Here in this video, Fr. David Fleming, former Superior General of the Society of Mary, gives a brief tour of Blessed Chaminade’s room in Bordeaux, France.
We are able to share with our Brothers their experiences of Bordeaux and continue to pray for the Canonization of Blessed Chamiande.
Enjoy the video!
