FOUNDERS' DAY: For the glorification of our founders in the hearts and minds of all Resurrectionists, and for fidelity to the charism and call which we share with them.
For our Community, in thanksgiving to God for blessings received, and asking continued blessings. For our living and deceased benefactors. For vocations to our Congregation.
God is granting me fervour...I ask him to help me to cast out all pride or vanity as I accept the position of Elder Brother which the brothers are offering to me...Our first council meeting...An act of thanksgiving and complete abandonment to the will of God. A vow of lifelong and fraternal community. (Paris, 2/21/1836)
