May 20, 1789, birth of Saint Marcellin

20/05/2005: General House

We look at Marcellin as our father, and learn from him the values that he held dear. We see in him:
* a heart in love with God: a man of God, passionate for Jesus and Mary, a man of prayer, a pilgrim in faith.
* the heart of a father and a mother: a father who cared for his Brothers as if they were his children, a man of strength yet full of gentleness, a man who knew how to bring joy and laughter to others.
* the heart of an apostle: a pastor who would listen to and welcome others, an apostle burning to proclaim the Good News of Jesus, a friend of children and youngsters, an educator who was both firm and compassionate, a man of creativity and daring.
* a heart without bounds: a man whose vision extended beyond his own era, embracing the whole world and preparing missionaries; a man who lived out his ideal so intensely that many others wished to be like him and to live like him.
