An Example of Community: The Marianist Tradition
An overview of Marianist community, written by Isabella R. Moyer, which appeared in the Feb. 15, 2012, "Prairie Messenger: Catholic Journal."
Concerning the Prayer of Faith (III)
. . . final installment in my series of spiritual reflections on what can be called a Marianist style of meditation.
Concerning the Prayer of Faith (II)
Father Chaminade is emphatic: “We must remember faith belongs more to the heart than to the mind.” (Second article of a 3-part series.)
Concerning the Prayer of Faith (I)
True love always seeks the interests of the beloved and how to please him or her. The opposite is not love but possessive self-centeredness. (First article of a 3-part series.)
A Christmas Weave
. . . I propose the metaphor of knitting, of working with yarn, to help us understand the many threads that go into creating the Christmas story.

. . . at this fourth and last Station of Advent I offer three specific points for us to consider . . .

A Reflection on Advent
When we think of Advent certain people and themes come to mind . . .
Father Chaminade and the Church
. . . Chaminade’s privileged contemplation of the mystical body of Christ becomes combined with his charismatic vision of the figure of Mary in the eternal plan of God.
Why Should We Dedicate Ourselves to Mary?
This is a fair question. After all, our entire religion is centered in Jesus. Why do we have to do anything else, except to listen to his Word and follow it.
Rule of LIfe: Congregation of the Daughters of Mary Immaculate
The 1984 Rule of Life of the Marianist Sisters
Twelve Days of Christmas
Adèle's prayerful words for the Twelve Days of Christmas.
Mary and Faith
"She [Mary] is my friend, my mother, and my mentor. I want other young mothers to know Mary as I know her and through her share their memories and stories."
A Reflection on Saragossa
Could it be that our view of what happened to Father Chaminade at Saragossa gives some insight into how God and the intercession of Mary work in our lives through our Marianist commitment?
Our Lady of the Pillar: Patroness
This is an interesting story, seemingly unbelievable, about Mary’s first apparition in history.
Marianist Theme: Mary
Through words and images, Father Solma explains his rediscovery of Mary . . . a woman some put on "the shelf" following the Second Vatican Council.
What Does Mary Believe?
I believe in coloring outside the lines . . . This may sound odd to some because I am supposed to be so perfect.
