There were over sixty young men who spent the evening in Adoration, Benediction, Evening Prayer, dinner, and conversation.
I was struck over the course of the day by how often I was asked the question - each time expressed in a slightly different way - what is Marianist spirituality? This can be something of a tricky question for Marianists to answer. For Marianists, a spiritual life is one that is guided and inspired by the Holy Spirit in all its aspects and dimensions. Blessed Chaminade passed to us a way of life and a mission. Yet if this tradition is to lead both those that hear us teach and the Brothers themselves to God, it must be founded on the one true God. That is, it must be founded on love. Hence a loving family spirit - that leads us to Jesus through Mary - the motto of the Marianists.
