Reflection: Together and by Association

by Br. Raymond Blixt, FSC
We have been gifted and chosen to serve as care- givers, mentors, and guardians for all the youth who have been entrusted to our care. To protect, guide, support our youth is to walk with them in times of trouble, trauma, fear and pain and see them through safely to the “other side.” Being helpers and healers for our youth will allow them to begin to experience the companionship and nurturing that they desperately seek and need. When we walk with them, we will also grow with them and the bond of trust that is born will allow miracles to happen…

John Baptist de La Salle was born the first son of wealthy parents living in France over 300 years ago. Born at Reims, John Baptist de La Salle received the tonsure at age eleven and was named Canon of the Reims Cathedral at sixteen.

Though he had to assume the administration of family affairs after his parents died, he completed his theological studies and was ordained a priest on April 9, 1678. Two years later he received a doctorate in theology. Meanwhile, he became tentatively involved with a group of rough and barely literate young men in order to establish schools for poor boys.

During De La Salle's time, most of the people were extremely poor: peasants in the country and slum dwellers in the towns. Only, a few could send their children to school; most children had little hope for the future. Moved by the plight of the poor who seemed so “far from salvation” either in this world or the next, he determined to put his own talents and advanced education at the service of the children “often left to themselves and badly brought up.”

To be more effective, he abandoned his family home, moved in with the teachers, renounced his position as Canon and his wealth, and so formed the community that became known as The Brothers of the Christian Schools. Founder's Day - May 15 - #DeLaSalleMay15
