In the life and work of Brother Gabriel, service to the Church and to society was a differentiating factor that we must continue to update so that his charism remains alive among us.
In Brother Gabriel’s biography we find edifying actions of service to the Church and to society: preacher and animator of his contemporaries, educator and teacher, tireless catechist, merciful father and organizer of the Congregation. His biographers point out that “he saw everywhere the need to do good”. In 1836, the Founder wrote to Bishop Mgr. Devie: “The plan of my initiative is the broadest: to set limits on it is not in my power, because I have the presentiment that these ideas come from God and not from me”.
