My Dear Friends,
I just finished reading Charles Dickens’ novel,
his novel Oliver Twist. A Tale of Two Cities was a
fascinating look at the French Revolution in the back-
ground of the novel’s story. I have read and studied
order, The Society of Mary (Marist Fathers). The
founder of my religious order, Fr. Jean-Claud Colin,
was born on August 7, 1790, just at the beginning
of the Reign of Terror that destroyed so many lives.
He was ordained a priest on July 22, 1816, and it was
from there that he began to work towards founding of
the Marists, which he ultimately founded in 1836 with
the blessing of Pope Gregory XVI. From the little that
I know of France’s history, both ancient and modern,
and ultimately even today, I’m not sure France ever
recovered from both the Enlightenment and the French
Revolution. France has become so very secular, and
the practice of the Catholic faith, as well as even some
of the Protestant faiths that began in France during
the Reformation, has deteriorated. What was once a
shining example of the Catholic faith and a defender of
Catholicism, with many notable saints and theologians
throughout her history, has become an empty shell of
religion. Fr. Jean-Claud Colin wanted his priests to
minister to the forgotten men and women of France,
and he stressed in his talks to his brother priests that
Marists were to avoid aligning themselves with any
political party over another. It is the preaching of the
faith, of the mercy of God, of the love of our Blessed
Mother and how she seeks out the lost and forgotten
that a Marist is to spend his life preaching. With the
French Revolution as his background, and with the
ever increasing secularism of today’s world not even
two hundred years later, we can see a need for once
again men and women to come to know and taste God
through prayer and through a deep relationship with
the Mother of God. And let us pray not only for France
but for all of Europe that is in danger of losing her soul
to the ravages of terrorism and secularism, especially
also for Great Britain. The life of the characters of
so many of Charles Dickens’ novels reminds us that
in the midst of so much despair and poverty there is
ultimately goodness that shines through.

DEFENDING OUR RELIGIOUS LIBERTY
Critics who say the Catholic Church is against
universal health care are misinformed.
The Catholic Church is founded on the
Corporal Works of Mercy and helping others.
The United States Conference of Catholic Bishops
(USCCB) has always advocated for health care.
The Catholic Church is opposing the health
care mandate, because it violates the First
Amendment, which is supposed to safeguard
freedom of religion.
