PDF: English | Español | Français | Português

The XIV message the Marist International Mission Commission, entitled “Human potential”, values the importance of the person and highlights that the strength of the Institute lies in the potential of those of us who are Marists of Champagnat.

The text, prepared in the name of the International Commission of Marist Mission by Br.  Rodrigo Espinosa Larracoechea (México), emphasizes human capital from 5 points: as the sense of Marist fraternity (we are truly family), our own unique “mark” (with a particular stamp), the care of the person, the professionalization as a permanent task, and the search for new horizons in the future, because “the path is made by walking…”

The message invites Marists to care for and foster “human potential” and calls on:
  • To deepen and share the diverse richness that gives us the experience of Brothers and lay people, in as many latitudes as there are Marist presences in the world;
  • To broaden the spaces for dialogue and listening, as well as more participatory processes of co-responsibility and commitment;
  • To maintain the attention and care of every person;
  • To strengthen our training and professionalization programs to ensure adequate and harmonious leadership.
  • To develop joint initiatives: provincial, regional, and global, with an integrative approach.
