New Champagnat Comic Book by « Goyo »

22/11/2012: Spain

On the occasion of the centenary of the Marist presence in Spain, the Spanish Marist  Conference (CME) published (1988) a CB on the life of Fr Champagnat, illustrated by « Goyo », Gregorio Domínguez, the recognised publicist of the figure of Marcellin for our time. The text was composed by Br Eugenio Sanz, then enriched by Br Gabriel Michel for the French version.

Our current European Vocations Team has come up with the idea of a new edition, taking the best of both texts, broadening its content and the number of pages. The first edition finished with the Champagnat’s death, but the life of the Institute has continued to bear fruit which, we believe, should be known by the children and young persons for whom it is intended.

The current edition has added a page which puts us in touch with  the task confided by the Church to the infant Society of Mary with regard to the new mission in the Pacific.

Three supplementary pages have been added at the end, as well, providing significant facts such as: the expulsion of the Brothers from France, the more than 200 Marist martyrs in the course of our short history, the canonisation of the Founder, the rich presence and experience of the Marist laity among us,  mission Ad Gentes, the current vast Marist mission of the present day and the « new » Hermitage, which is calling on us to recover the spirit which animated the Brothers in the construction of the first mother-house.

Our publishing house Luis Vives is responsible for the edition and a group of brothers and laity have made the translation into the 11 languages spoken in Marist Europe.

Copies will be distributed, by language, by the Provinces of Europe. Persons wishing to purchase them should order via the e-mail address of this page or the CME one direccioncme@maristas.es

For further editions in another language based on the originals destined for the printer, you will need also to contact CME : direccioncme@maristas.es

We take joy in putting this publication at the service of the whole Marist Family which desires to learn about our  origins and our  mission in the world of today.

Br Ernesto Tendero, co-ordinator European Vocations Team.
