Abstract:

The story of St. John Baptist de la Salle and of the Christian Brothers, told simply and without flourish. It is the story of a man set, all unknowingly, at a work of which he had never dreamed, and then catching fire and pursuing that work in the face of the most distressing odds: he was abandoned by friends; betrayed by those whom he trusted; unjustly dishonoured; threatened with imprisonment; faced with persecution. Yet never did he flinch or falter in the pursuit of his ideals. His faith in God's providence was absolute--and that faith was always rewarded.
