William Joseph Chaminade
From its very origin, the Marianist Family has been witness to the power of Christian friendship. Read about the deep spiritual bond between Blessed William Joseph Chaminade and Venerable Marie Thérèse de Lamourous as the Marianist Family began to develop. They relied upon each other for help and insight.
The Letter to the Retreat Masters of 1839 is considered Chaminade’s most important writing. This Marianist Matters provides Lawrence Cada’s introduction to the letter, his English translation of Chaminade’s original, plus a newly-created feature: a section of prayers and reflection questions pertaining to the text for today’ Marianists. This is an excellent resource for individual or community use.
