Marist Millennium Pledge

The “Marist Millennium Pledge” is a Formation tool which can use to help structure our discernment and way of living as Marists. Across a total of 12 months a person is invited to discern about ten things where God is calling them to follow Mary and Jesus. These commitments will take time to emerge. Over several months, through our own prayer life and our encounters with spiritual friends or Marists these pledges will begin to appear.

Reasons to be afraid

Central to our thinking about the Christian life is the Incarnation – God’s being in the flesh. That is both a historical fact – which includes the political, the cultural, the social and the physical – and a theological fact. The reality of the Incarnation means, amongst other things, that we encounter God in history not outside history. We must resist any temptation to avoid the historical facts of life. Sometimes the Church has been regarded as some kind of metaphysical reality that stands outside history
 

Leaders change the way we see things

Why do we give? What happens if we change the question? Not about 'me'. Not 'Please help' but rather 'in the next 2 weeks, 'if you only give once a month, please think of me next time'. This has nothing to do with the taker, but rather the giver.

True belonging is about a spiritual practise. It is about an ability to find sacredness in both being a part of something but also the courage to the stand alone. For those of us who have the courage to stand alone especially when we know that we are risking that sense of being a part of something because we disagree and because we have a different opinion, because we love something different. That is the mark of true belonging. The ability to say yes I belong, but also to stand alone when I need to.

Marist faith and spirituality

There are lots of ways that I maintain my relationship with God. It has grown out of years of questioning and engaging. I am not going to pretend it is something that I received over night. The call of being a follower of God is being a searcher. Someone who searches and it is a lifelong process. Prayer being a conversation with God. Sometimes that is worth words. Sometimes that is in a silence space. Sometimes that is allowing whatever is happening to come forth, and to evolve. There is an openness to that God will unfold things. I am in a loving relationship with God, and I do not need to work for God’s love. It is there.
