Marists are called for a deep, personal relationship with Mary, without, however, making her the central focus. Our emphasis is on living like Mary, adopting her faith, her point of view, her whole approach to life. In a most profound sense, this means to make Mary present to our world today.
O how sad and sore distressed
Was that Mother, highly blest
Of the sole-begotten One.
May Mary be Our Guide and Example of Courage in Lent.
