An Initiative of the Institute for Marist Studies in Salamanca



Champagnat Documentation Course

12/02/2009: Spain

The Institute for Marist Studies, a recent creation of the Pontifical University of Salamanca proposed by the Provincial Councils of the Provinces of Compostela and Mediterranea, is uniting with the University of Teacher Education Luis Vives. Among its purposes is the formation of courses for those interested from the Marist Provinces.

The “Champagnat Documentation Course” (Cycle A) aspires to be an approach to the understanding of the person of Marcellin Champagnat through Marist writings and documents. It has as objectives an improved knowledge and understanding the living out of a common charism. It offers the possibility of reflection on the motives and the solutions which Marcellin gave to the concrete problems of his times. The dynamic of this study is an invitation to share in this lived experience. It will attempt to ferment a profound, mutual enrichment of the Marist spiritual patrimony.

This course that the Institute offers in Marist studies is part-time with on-line support. The attendance part will involve two sessions: the 6th and 7th of March and the 1st, 2nd and 3rd of July 2009. The part-time sessions are fulfilled by each student between the first and second sessions, working with the on-line support of a virtual presentation and with the follow-up on the part of the professor, who is Brother Fernando Hinojal Citores of the Mediterranea Province, an expert with much experience with this movement.
It is directed at the education community in general and all those interested may participate: Brothers, Catechists, Animators, Professors, Advisers, Alumni, Fraternities, and members of the General Marist Family.

The organizers of this course invite the participants to greater self-knowledge, based on the phenomenon of the resonance and the spiritual awareness of the charisma of Marcellin. Champagnat is not able to be studied merely from psychological and sociological parameters. The richest and most significant aspects of the Founder escape the most thorough analysis of human sciences. The real depth of the man is a mystery. We wish, therefore, to discover the work of the Spirit in Champagnat’s life and charism.
