Awakening the dawn



Prayer for the general conference

The General Conference is a consultative assembly, made up of the Brother Superior General, the Brother Vicar General, the Councilors General, the Brothers Provincial and the Superiors of Districts (Marist Constitutions 137.11). The next General Conference will take place at Our Lady of the Hermitage, from September 8 to 29, 2013, ynder the motto: Awakening the Dawn: Prophets and Mystics for Our Time.

Prayer for the general conference

Mary, dawn of the new times,
we entrust to you the coming General Conference:
those taking part and the works of preparation.
We too wish to awaken the dawn
and live the newness offered us each day,
in every moment of our lives.

We offer you our desire of growing in the conviction
that you are calling us to be prophets and mystics for our time.
This is the vocation of Marist brothers and laity;
and we know that on our response
depends our present and our future.

In a world that compels us towards activism,
accept, O Mary, our willingness
to make of Jesus the centre of our lives.
Act so that our educational and social commitment
springs from the fountain of life which is your Son Jesus,
and so that the experience of being with Him
moves us to act and to denounce
the unjust situations of our time.
