Marist Calendar - April




8th of May 2004

Liberty, Equality, Fraternity : ideal of French society.
Obedience, Poverty, Chastity : ideal of Brother Henri as a religious.
Obedience led Brother Henri to complete liberty which made him accessible to all.
Poverty, which frees from selfishness, allowed him to bring about more equality.
Chastity gave him a brotherly heart for all the youth who came to study in the library he was directing in Algiers. Then, they could discover the true meaning of fraternity. (On can read the entire speech on the page dedicated to our causes.)

Using these two sets of themes, Br. Alain Delorme delivered a speech for the inauguration of the Place Frère Henri Vergès, in Matemale, on May the 8th.

The place is located near the parish church where Henri was baptized.
Bishop André Marceau blessed the plaque and the Mayor addressed the crowd telling of his joy in dedicating that place to a son of Matemale. Later, Br. Alain gave a talk about Br. Henri’s life.
