Dawn of the Word in Silence
Dawn of the Word in Silence retraces the mission of the Marist Brothers in China. In line with the vision of their founder Marcellin Champagnat, the first Brothers who made imprints on the soul (and the soul_ of the Chinese in 1981, went “to make Jesus known and loved.” With the special heart that the Marist Brothers had for children forsaken in tragic depths of human and spiritual poverty, the mission in China was an interplay of challenges, and triumphs. Set against the backdrop of China’s tumultous political situation, the Marist Brothers not only rolled up their sleeves to work; they also shed both their tears and blood. Their fidelity accentuates the incalculable value of the Gospel, which they were ready to live and die for.
