"After prayer in the Madeleine our founders, sitting around the table, toasting with a good Bordeaux, ask everyone to think about their hopes for the new year and the resolutions they want to make
Chaminade: In the new year I want to remind the world that in Mary, diversity and unity can exist together in community; where the miracle of Cana speaks to abundance and overflowing resources for everyone.
Adèle: In the new year I want to continue to work against human trafficking and for justice for all women who are deprived and oppressed.
Marie Thérèse: In the new year work I want to continue my work for justice for those marginalized, globally and locally.
All three together as one Marianist Family: In the new year let's remind everyone of the central message of Pope Francis that the earth is our sister and that care for creation is integrally connected to our work for justice."
