Brother Thomas Giardino, SM, executive director of the Association of Marianist Universities (AMU) muses on Marianist higher education in light of Father David Fleming’s chapters on Marianist education in "A New Fulcrum: Marianist Horizons Today."
Blaise M. Mosengo, SM, writes that "Just as the generation of Marianist pioneers brought the spirituality of Marianist education to Africa, it is now time for African Marianist educators to address, in 'African languages,' different questions related to Marianist culture in school."
Father David Fleming, former Superior General of the Society of Mary, muses and expounds on key questions of contemporary Marianist life, but always through the magnifying lens of Blessed Chaminade’s quest for a “new fulcrum.” Father Fleming’s work contains 10 essays covering topics pertaining to Marianist education, spirituality, leadership, mixed composition, and identity.
