Now, With Enthusiasm
Charism, God’s Mission and Catholic Schools Today

Author: Michael Green, fms
Australia – Brisbane – 13/09/2018

Br. Michael Green is alert to such questions and responds to them here with confidence and creativity. The book is both sharp and dense in the way it addresses the connection between charism, spirituality and culture. It offers a sophisticated treatment of the way in which a crisis of identity is also a crisis of purpose and meaning. It sets a biblical and historical context for typically contemporary reflections. It is theologically very solid but accessible nonetheless. This is all to say that Michael Green, himself a product and promoter of Marist spirituality and the great tradition of Marist education that has emerged from it, has written a book which is nothing if not timely. In drawing together themes both old and new, it will surely help shed light on our path as we grapple with the large and complex questions prompted by the changing contexts we face in the schools and in the Church

Illustrated History of Notre Dame de l’Hermitage

Author: Barry Lamb, FMS
Australia – Heidelberg West – 08/2018 – 312 pp.

Barry is well known for his creativity and energy and so it isn’t unusual that he would propose research into the place that has been so central to our Marist story. Over time he fixed on the idea of a popular, rather than a scholarly history, and decided that images and photos can convey simply and easily the richness of a long history. Hence the ‘illustrated history’. Barry’s undertaking took him initially to our Province Archives, and then further afield – to Rome and France, where he scoured the archives of the Institute and Province, and of course, also to the Hermitage itself. He collected enormous resources: photos, documents, artefacts, images. Categorising, ordering and organising followed. Then came the task of knitting the pieces together with a narrative. His considerable labour concluded with the publication of the book earlier this month. It is A4 in page size, 312 pages in length, with 34 Chapters.

Dawn of the Word
In Silence – The Adventure of the Marist Brothers in China

Author: Ardiano Caballero and Spes Stanley Ku
Print press: New City
Philippines – 232 pp.

The book retraces the mission of the Marist Brothers in China. The first Brothers who made imprints on the soil of China in 1891, went “to make Jesus known and loved”. The mission in China was an interplay of challenges and triumphs. Set against the backdrop of China’s tumultuous political situation, the Marist Brothers not only rolled up their sleeves to work; they also shed both their tears and their blood. Their fidelity accentuates the incalculable value of the Gospel, which they were ready to live and die for.

Author: H. Emili Turú y José Manuel Vidal
Print press: Ediciones Khaf

En 2017, los Maristas han celebrado el bicentenario de su fundación. Una celebración que se ha distribuido a lo largo de tres años. Para motivar cada uno de estos años, el H. Emili Turú, como superior general, escribió una serie de cartas a los Maristas de Champagnat.
José Manuel Vidal, el encargado de la segunda parte del libro, escrita desde un contexto social y eclesial determinado, y pensando en algunos grupos de personas en particular, nos ayuda a poner nombres y rastros concretos a las mil situaciones que nos encontramos en el día a día, y a dejarnos cuestionar por ellas.
