Young People Explain the Marist Charism in New Video



Youth say Marist Charism is to ‘Love Jesus and Talk in the Way of Mary’

23/09/2016: General House

A new video on what young people believe the Marist charism is has been released by the general house press office.

The interviews were filmed during the international Marist youth gathering in Lyon, France, in July.

“For me, the Marist charism means to live with Marcellin’s spirit,” states Raffaele Gaudieri, who coordinates and animates two groups of the Giugliano Marist pastoral community in Italy.

“What distinguished Marcellin from others was what he said,” he adds. “He was convinced of the fact that he could not pass beside a young person without letting him know how much God loves him.”

He goes on to explain that “in order to educate children, one must love them, this is written everywhere in our community and it’s what we do through our animation.”

According to Michel Abdallah, from the Collège des Frères Maristes Jbeil-Amchit Byblos in Lebanon, the Marist charism means treating all people the same, regardless of religion or wealth.  

Masengo Adeline, of the Teacher Training College Save in Rwanda, believes the Marist charism means “to love Jesus and to talk in the way of Mary” and highlighted the importance of Mary’s presence in one’s daily life.
