In History's Dark Moments - A Webseries on Fr. Mermier

A web series (from Fransalian Seminary) sketching the life and Mission of Fr. Peter Mary Mermier, the great Missionary who left behind a great legacy with the clarion call " I Want Missions". As a result of which founded the two Religious Congregations: The Missionaries of St. Francis De Sales and Sisters of the Cross of Chavanod

“Fr. Mermier was inspired by the missionary zeal of St Francis de Sales, the great apostle of Chablais and a great master of spiritual life. Inflamed by the love for God and an intense love for humanity, St Francis de Sales saw in the disfigurement of humans the disfigurements of God himself. He found in the false doctrines, slackening of faith, unfounded fear to draw near to a compassionate God, fragmentation within and among themselves, discrimination in the name of class, gender and positions.” (MSFS Constitution No.5).
