The word Marist is composed of the first three letters of Mary’s name, and the last three letters of Christ’s name. You may begin by looking at Mary, but you always end up looking at Christ.
Christ above in torment hangs,
She beneath beholds the pangs,
Of her dying glorious Son.
May Mary be Our Guide and Example of Courage in Lent.
