“Marvellous Companions of Marcellin Champagnat”



Brother Alain Delorme presents another volume of biographies

15/12/2011: General House

The book “Marvellous Companions of Marcellin Champagnat” has just been published. The author is Brother Alain Delorme, and this book is a companion of his first volume which appeared in 2009 under the title: “Our First Brothers. Marvellous companions of  Marcellin”. The two works are parallel and complementary.

Following on the success of the first volume, Brother Alain has extended the presentation of the “lives of Marist Brothers, many of whom knew Father Champagnat personally”, which continue to be an inspiration for living the charism and mission in the world of today. The book treats of 17 inspiring biographies which put us in touch with the roots of the Institute. Each concludes with a section entitled “Praying with…” in which Br Alain helps us enter into prayer with one of the Brothers. “If it is true that a tree lives through its roots, our acquaintance with those who, in the past, contributed to the strengthening and growth of the Institute of the Little Brothers of Mary, might enlighten our way, as we prepare to celebrate the bicentennial of its foundation”, as he writes in the brief introduction.

These two works provide an excellent means for arousing among the Brothers, and the laity as well, an interest in learning more about the beginning of the work of God and men in the birth and growth of the life of Brothers who contributed to the development of our religious family.

The work “Marvellous Companions of Marcellin Champagnat” has been printed in   Rome in English, Spanish and French. The Portuguese edition will be published in Brasil in 2012.
