Chaminade Pamphlet in French (by Brother John Samaha, S.M.)
Several years ago Father Joseph Stefanelli composed an excellent pamphlet about
the Founder of the Society of Mary, with the title Chaminade, Pragmatist With a Vision.
Father Antonio Solda added good photographs and printed it in
Italy. It has been widely distributed and used. Copies may be obtained from
Brother Robert Resing at the
Provincial Administration in St. Louis.
This would be interesting for reading in classes of students studying the English language.
Father Robert Witwicki translated this booklet into French as Chaminde, Visionaire et Realiste.
The French edition was also printed in Italy in color with attractive photos. This booklet will be very useful for the coming
Chaminade Year in 2011 to honor the 250th anniversary of the birth of Blessed William Joseph Chaminade.
Both students and adults will find it interesting and
inspiring. Copies of this French edition are available from Brother Jean-Paul Ounsa at the
Provincial Administration in Paris.
Let us use this publication to promote interest in our Founder and his cause for canonization, especially during the Chaminade Year.
Icons of the Electronic Age,

Pope Recalls Paul VI's Marian Devotion
Proclaimed Mary as Mother of Church
Source: Zenit (Brescia, Italy), November 8, 2009
Pope Paul VI's priesthood was under the protection of Mary and devotion to her
accompanied him for his whole life, says Benedict XVI.
The Pope spoke of his predecessor today before praying the midday Angelus with crowds who attended a
Mass the Holy Father celebrated in Brescia, where Giovanni Montini was born.
Benedict XVI made a one-day trip to Paul VI's birthplace today.
With a brief discourse, the German Pontiff highlighted a particular contribution Paul VI made to
"His November. 21, 1964, address at the closing of the third
session of the Second Vatican Council is memorable," the Pope said. During that
session of the council the Constitution on the Church, Lumen Gentium, was
promulgated. The document had, as Paul VI noted, 'an entire chapter dedicated to the Madonna as its apex and crown.' ...
The director and editors of The Mary Page under the auspices of the
International Marian Research Institute do not necessarily endorse or agree with
the events and ideas expressed in this feature. Our sole purpose is to report on
items about Mary gleaned from a myriad of papers representing the secular press.
