A Simple Pattern

Introduction

A short story of the life of Marist Founder Jeanne Marie Chavoin.


So what is a pattern?
What meaning does it have in this story?

A pattern is ,something people use as a guide or a model.
It can help you you make things - clothes,
for example -you just copy the shapes on to the material and follow the instructions for putting them together.

It is a bit like the plan that comes in the box wait
'do-it-yourself' kits -
for the putting together at furniture -
the pattern shows you where each piece goes, how it fits,
so that you will finish up with what you want.

What that has that to do with our story?

Well, it is not about making clothes or model boats
or putting furniture together.

It is about one person's adventure through life
as she tried to become the best person she could be.

When 'Jeanne-Marie Chavoin was young
she already had some idea the kind 4 person
she wanted to be.

But she was looking for a pattern to guide her,
nothing complicated - just a simple pattern.

She found what she was looking for.

As you read the story of Jeanne-Marie Chavoin,
look for the pattern she chose
to help her become the kind of person she wanted to be.

Perhaps her simple pattern may suit you too.
