REMEMBERING FR. EMMANUEL D'ALZON PDF Print E-mail

 FR. EMMANUEL D'ALZOND’Alzon November 21, 2019

Next year 2020 will mark the 175th anniversary of the founding of the Assumptionists. Today we recall the day our founder, Emmanuel d’Alzon, died…November 21, 1880. Let me say a word about him. Born in 1810 to a distinguished family in southern France, his whole life consisted in taking profound, life-shattering risks.

First of all, there were the not inconsequential risks he took by virtue of shunning the aristocratic status of his family and the powerful fortune that he would inherit, a fortune that would easily establish him as a man of noble standing and public influence. I was never more impressed with the extraordinary legacy that d’Alzon turned his back on than I did in 2010 when leading a pilgrimage in his footsteps on the occasion of the bicentennial of his birth. On that pilgrimage we found ourselves one day standing on the terrace of the once stunning chateau of Lavagnac where d’Alzon spent his childhood and where he would return regularly throughout his life….described, by some, as the Versailles of the southern France.

11-Autumn-510

Reflections from Fr. Dennis Gallagher, Provincial of the Assumptionists North American Province

Autumn in New England has two distinct phases. The first half of the season tops the popularity charts with its show of color, cooler temperatures and crisp apples. For many, the second half of the season is less winning, with steely gray skies, trees stripped bare, and dread for what is to come.

For a good part of my life, this was pretty much my take on fall, as the brightness of October gave way to the chill of November’s shorter and darker days. A palpable sadness settled into me. I wanted to hibernate. Drawing close to someone for warmth and comfort was not an option, so I was left to saying, in the words of that great philosopher, Bill Parcells, “it is what it is.”

FR. RICHARD CELEBRATES MASS TO COMMEMORATE ASSUMPTIONIST MARTYRS PDF Print E-mail

.

Together with the Assumption family throughout the world, Fr. Richard Lamoureux, A.A. celebrated Mass at the Chapel of the Holy Spirit at Assumption College commemorating the feast day (November 13) of the three Bulgarian Assumptionists Martyrs, Blessed Fathers
Kamen Vitchev, Pavel Djidjov and Josaphat Chichkov.

The witness of our Blessed Martyrs reminds us all of the words of Jesus "Very truly, I tell you, unless a grain of wheat falls into the earth and dies, it remains just a single grain; but if it dies, it bears much fruit. Those who love their life lose it, and those who hate their life in this world will keep it for eternal life. Whoever serves me must follow me, and where I am, there will my servant be also."

TAIZE WORCESTER HOSTS TWO BROTHERS FROM TAIZE IN FRANCE - OCTOBER 13, 2019 PDF Print E-mail

.

The Story of Taize:

Taize is a small village in western France about 50 miles from Geneva, Switzerland

Brother Roger, a Protestant, founded a small monastery in the village in 1940 following the defeat of France by the Nazis. He wanted to create a refuge for people who were devastated by the Nazi invasion. He also wanted to create an environment where people of different faiths and views to come together to find ways to honor their differences and to find reconciliation and unity where that was possible. It is one of the few monasteries in the world where Protestant and Catholic men live and pray together as monks. Taize is a site of pilgrimage where over 100,000 young people per year, both Christian and non-Christian, come as pilgrims for singing, silence, and devotion.
