Blessed Chaminade Inspirations

One source of Chaminade’s inspiration came from prayerful reflection on the Church community presented in the Acts of the Apostles.

How did the fear­ful little community of the Upper Room, through the Holy Spirit, become the vibrant missionary Church of the later chapters of Acts?

Blessed Chaminade noted three key elements in the Church of Acts: the centrality of Mary, the need for inclusiveness, and the urgency to foster faith and a deep sense of missionary activity.
