On October 7th, the General Council released the Spanish and English versions of the text, Wherever You Go: The Marist Brothers’ Rule of Life, and explained the process used in crafting this text and the meaning of this important Marist document. Today, the Council presents this document in French and Portuguese.

Our thanks to the brothers who have collaborated in the translations.  For the French version: Brothers Maurice Berquet (L’Hermitage) and Josep Roura (L’Hermitage); For the Portuguese version: Brothers Sebastião Ferrarini (Brasil Sul-Amazônia) and Antonio Leal (Compostela). We are also grateful to those who have collaborated in revising these translations.

The official date of approval of the Rule of Life is January 2, 2020, the day on which we celebrate the anniversary of the foundation of our Institute.  The document will eventually include a section for references, quotations and explanatory notes. A final version will be printed and sent to the Administrative Units.

The version we are presenting today, in the four official languages of the Institute, has some drawings by the Brazilian artist, Sérgio Ceron.  These drawings are in the form of icons, whose motif is related to each of the chapters of the text. We are grateful for the work he has done. 

As I expressed last October in my message announcing the Rule of Life, it is my hope that this new document will encourage us in the gift of our vocation, to live our lives according to the heart of Mary as Champagnat wanted when he gave us our name.

Br. Ernesto Sánchez – Superior General
