What is the difference between a Marianist and a Jesuit?
The main difference is the Marianists emphasize a strong discipleship based on the mother of Jesus. They differ in that brothers
and priests are on an equal level of respect, with the priests tending to the sacramental life and the brothers tending especially to
the education part of the mission, with both working together for the poor on social justice issues. Jesuits focus on obedience to
the Pope and are more individual in their expressions of community life.
Vincenzina Krymow, Brother Joe Barrish and Sister Jean Frisk will be signing copies of
Mary's Flowers: Gardens, Legends and Meditations from 1 to 3 p.m. on Saturday, November 20, 2010 at

the local stations for Radio Maria

Called "Francesca and Friends: Why Mary?," the program airs
every Wednesday from 12:00 - 1:00 PM EST focusing on what is going on in the world about Mary, how to speak with others about Mary, and
Mary in Scripture.
On Wednesday, November 17, Francesca Franchina speaks with Rich DiSilvio of Massapequa, NY; architectural designer and remodeler,
artist, illustrator, 'new media' developer, educational software programmer, publisher and author of The Winds of Time
about the Roman/Italian influences that have shaped Western Civilization, and most pointedly modern America, including the beginning
of the Republic and how America emulated it; the differences between Roman and Greek systems and societies; the importance of the
mission of Christopher Columbus for civilization and the Catholic Church; how the Founders of the USA created a great Declaration and
Constitution despite their own flaws, and how Jesus Christ and The Blessed Mother fit into this mix!
"With America's future and very survival in mind, the author reveals many lessons and warnings that only the past can provide."

Our Lady the Hibakusha
Source: Catholic Worker (Jefferson, MA) August-September, 2010
This Spring I [Brian Terrell] travelled from my home in Iowa to join Catholic Workers and
friends from around the country in New York to celebrate the anniversary of the founding of our movement there on
May 1, 1933. An added incentive for this journey was to join with activists from around the globe in witnesses for
nuclear abolition on the occasion of the United Nations' Non-Proliferation Treaty review conference that began on
Monday, May 3. It was at the May Day festivities that the word was passed that the archbishop of Nagasaki, Japan,
who was in town to address the U.N. conference, would be celebrating the 10:15 Mass at St. Patrick's Cathedral
the next day and several of us decided we would attend.
At the very end of the Mass, just before the final blessing, Archbishop Takami was invited to say a few
words. It was difficult to understand the archbishop's accent as he thanked the Archdiocese of New York and all
of us present for our hospitality. He said something, too, referring to our blessed mother, Mary as an atomic bomb
victim. As he and the other clergy processed off, the Japanese media all rushed up with their cameras to a place just
to the left of the altar, a place that Martha and I could not see from our place half way down the cathedral nave.
It was not until we worked our way against the departing crowd to the front to see what was going on that we
understood what the archbishop had tried to tell us. There, a few feet beyond the altar rail was a simple, low table. On
this table was a charred, broken piece of sculpture that I recognized from photographs as
Mary, the Hibakusha. The
archbishop brought with him to New York the head that was all that was left of a full scale statue of Mary, the
mother of Jesus, found in the rubble of Nagasaki's Urakami (Immaculate Conception) Cathedral after that city
was destroyed by an atom bomb on August 9, 1945....
