Something About Company

It was in their personal encounter with that particular face of the Divine that our Marist founders, St Marcellin among them, were impelled to start a new family in the Church.  For an icon of the mercy of God, they were intuitively drawn to Mary, taking her name as their own.  They were to be Mary-ists. Marists. They sought to be Mary for the Church of their day. Ponder that concept. For them it meant they would incarnate the mercy of God in ways that were distinctively Marian: they would nurture, empathise and gather; they would go out, teach and reconcile; they would be bearers of joy, justice and love.  And they would do it in ways that were grounded, accessible and inclusive. Like Mary, their response to God in their own lives would allow the reign of God to come alive in their world. Christ would be born in their midst.  They called this ‘Mary’s work’ and they dedicated their lives to it.
