A Brother's Progress

Public speaking

Brother Josh, MIC, is asked to speak in front of a parish congregation about his vocation and the charisms of the Marian Congregation. "When I got to our charisms, I made another mistake," he admits.

Paschal Blessings

"There is a very special place in God’s heart for us sinners, and I am no better than anyone else," says Br. Josh, MIC. "This Paschal Triduum, I was beautifully reminded of how good and merciful God is."

Who I am

A frequent theme in religious formation is identity, knowing oneself. "This was a theme during my novitiate and remains a theme in seminary," says Br. Josh, MIC.

Resting with Jesus

"Father Thad has been teaching our community about poverty in religious life," says Brother Josh, "and for me, poverty is tied to peace, freedom, and simplicity. My mind feels tranquil when I have very little."
