For God so loved the world, as to give his only begotten Son; that whosoever believeth in him, may not perish, but may have life everlasting. Saint John the Apostle

Saint Quote: Saint Marcelino Champagnat


If it were only a question of teaching human knowledge to the children, there would be no need for Brothers, since lay teachers can do this work. If we are to give only religious instruction, we would be content to be simply catechists, and to bring the children together for only one hour a day. But we want to do more than this - we want to educate the children, that is, to give them an integrated education... To do this, we must be educators, we must live with the children, and they must spend a lot of time with us.

--Saint Marcelino Champagnat
