God gives us the saints to encourage and guide us on the path of Christian life. It is important not to let this help be lost, especially when it concerns our Marianist Family. A beatification or canonization is above all the fruit of the people’s devotion and attachment to this witness whose power of intercession we use, bringing about graces and miracles.

We are reminded of the place that these witnesses can take in our lives and in our pastoral ministry. In opening the third millennium, Pope John Paul II invited us to develop a “pedagogy of holiness.” Pope Francis calls us to recognize the “saints next door.” May the witnesses of our Marianist history help us to do this!
