Today, we continue in the venture to renew the spirit and mission of the Church as a place of collaboration and true spiritual enrichment.
We invite you to discover that true strength is found in gentleness. Marist spirituality invites us to embrace this liberating truth, which comes to us from the heart of God, by following Mary, the Mother of Jesus. Like Mary, we too can hear the gentle rhythms of the grace of God in our lives by making our own her manner of thinking, judging, feeling, and acting.
Mary's way is a direct path to the divine heart of mercy.

Paranoia to Metanoia: Courageous Mercy Transforming Violence and Racism
With God's grace we must turn to metanoia. This includes having a "bigger mind and heart" which sees the dignity and the image of God in all persons involved in conflicts.
COLUMBUS, OHIO (August 5, 2016). The leaders of U.S. Catholic men's religious orders gathered for our national assembly "Rich in Mercy" August 2-5 in Columbus, OH. In our gathering of prayer and reflection, we sensed the deep pain and division again in our nation, as well as elsewhere. In our response, Jesus is our guide. He says, "This is my commandment, that you love one another, just as I have loved you." (John 15:12)
We are called to love as Jesus loved and to honor those who love in this way: compassionate, empathetic, reconciling, love of friends and perceived enemies, using nonviolent resistance against injustice and violence...

The Marist World Prepares To Commemorate
200 Years Of Its Founding Pledge
By Fr. Ted Keating, SM
Early on the morning of July 23, 1816, a group of young men made their way up 800 steps leading to the ancient shrine of Fourvière, in Lyons, France. For more than a year, they had shared intense conversations about a major project they had been encouraging each other to bring to fruition: the foundation of a Religious Congregation totally devoted to Mary, Mother of God.
We are told that the early Christian communities were one in mind and heart, and held all things in common. The communities were places of prayer filled with the Spirit of Christ, where people gathered in peace and in reconciliation, justice and joy. They were places where one might find understanding, acceptance, and mercy.
The very attributes ascribed to the early Christian communities are the very values all Marists are called to live today. Wherever they may minister, be it in schools or parishes, colleges or hospitals, missions or shrines, you will find them of one mind and one heart, living the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

Criminal Justice Reform Decision
The Republican leadership in the House of Representatives will be deciding whether to bring the criminal justice reform bills up for a vote this September.
Our interfaith coalition is organizing for our networks to contact our representatives urging them to have this vote before the elections.
There is agreement that our criminal justice system does not work, breaks families and communities, and costs the taxpayer far too much!
