Brothers and sisters in the Fraternity of Blessed Charles of Jesus

I introduce to you the medals and pins of Br. Charles for the upcoming Centennial year starting December 1st, 2015.

I have taken the initiative to produce these medals, lapel pins, and Jesus Caritas crosses.  All these items were made in China, in very large quantities to keep the price low, so that anyone, any where in the world, can afford to have one.

HOW CAN YOU USE THE CENTENNIAL YEAR TO SHARE BLESSED CHARLES DE FOUCAULD???

DECEMBER 1, 1916-DECEMBER 1, 2016

Centennial

100 years anniversary of the death of Blessed Charles de Foucauld

Beginning this December 1, 2015 begins a yearlong celebration of the life and death of Blessed Charles of Jesus. Shot to death, December 1, 1916 in the obscure village of Tamanrasset deep in the Sarah of Algeria, it’s hard to believe that someone who died alone could be the founder of 16 religious congregations. His spiritual children are now in every country on earth, and purposely in the most remote and poorest cities and villages.

Joined together, we are asked by the International Association Charles de Foucauld to do everything we can to use this year both for personal growth, and in some way as a country, dioceses, or whatever possible, to share his life and spirituality. The Association asks us to use this year to promote, make known and in any way to bring his life and contemplative spirituality to the attention of our people.

We have no press releases, there is no one who can charge of this endeavor. We are not organized in any way to do this. It would be a wonderful time to use Catholic magazines, newspapers and other media possible. Maybe you know someone who could aid us in this little mission. We know that Pope Francis is doing a wonderful job for the spirituality of Blessed Charles. His message of fraternal love and the rejection of paternalism is so much at the core of who Blessed Charles was.

As we say: no attitude.

Can you, will you in any way join with us the international family of Blessed Charles throughout the world to use this year to share his life with others?

We welcome any comments, or suggestions.
