- "What characteristics of Champagnat attract me the most?"
- "Which do I want to incorporate into my life?"
- "How can I put love into action, as Marcellin did?"

Marist Reflections for an Advent Journey with Mary, Our Good Mother
Marcellin Champagnat gave us the name of Mary to encourage us to live in “the way of Mary” because he wanted us to live according to her spirit. He called her “our Ordinary Resource” & urged the early brothers to regularly confide in her as they journeyed through life.
