A Short History of  Marianist Spirituality is exactly that—short. Yet within its 139 pages, Cada captures the essence of the origins and development of Marianist spirituality. Ever attentive to language, Cada examines the evolution of many phrases and concepts dear to Marianists and carves a solid analysis for why Marianist spirituality is fundamentally “lay,” “adaptive,” and “Modern.”

This work, part of the Modern Theology & Marianist Spirituality project, under the direction of the Society of Mary's General Administration, is an essential primer for anyone wishing to enter more fully into the history of our charism.
