Message for the feast of Saint Marcellin Champagnat
This year’s message of the Superior General for the feast of Saint Marcellin Champagnat on June 6 centres around the celebration of the Fourvière Year and the Jubilee Year of Mercy. “Champagnat and his young priest friends dreamt of a Church with a Marian face, that is to say, with a profound heart of mercy,” underscores Brother Emili Turú. “They dreamt of a Christian community that would have mercy as the basis of their life and mission.”
