The Life of Personal Prayer (Circular No. 3)

Father David Fleming, former Superior General of the Society of Mary, reminds us that personal prayer is like a meaningful relationship, it requires time and nurturing. His Circular Letter includes "Ten Common Obstacles to the Life of Prayer" and it illumines "Hallmarks of Marianist Prayer." A practical thinker, with a rich spiritual heart, every Marianist can glean growth and wisdom from Father Fleming's insights into personal prayer.

After the General Chapter: Some Reflections on the Future of the Marianist Charism (Circular No.1)

Father David Fleming's inaugural Circular as Superior General of the Society of Mary provides "seeds of the future," as he compares Blessed Chaminade's times to our current times. Along the way, Father Dave sums up the Marianist charism in five key words: faith, mission, community, inclusivity, and Mary. He also points out some challenges for Marianists today.

Mission & Charism: "Reimagining the Dream," a Marianist Missionary Narrative for the Twenty-First Century

According to Robert K. Moriarty, SM, "As Marianists in the United States take stock these days of our contemporary situation and our future prospects, we hear calls for the development of a 'common missionary vision' or 'new missionary narrative' for the years ahead. 'Mission & Charism' offers itself as a contribution for this developing conversation among us. The focus on the missionary is key."
