Chaminade and Adversity: A Conversation

Brother Timothy Phillips, SM, a Marianist scholar and formator, and Anthony Garascia, a professional counselor, discuss challenges involved in Blessed Chaminade’s long life. How was it that major setbacks—the French Revolution and organizational hurdles in re-Christianizing France—did not cripple the Founder with anxiety and fear? How was it that Chaminade pushed through obstacles into greater holiness. (A letter Chaminade wrote to Marie Thérèrse de Lamourous serves as a backdrop to this conversation.)
Chaminade and Mary

Chaminade and Mary

According to Johann G. Roten, SM: "Chaminade was more than a moralist; he was a prophet who proclaimed courageously the victory of Christ, whose most beautiful work is the Virgin Mary. Indeed, his thought is definitely more Christological and ecclesial than Marian."
