Br. André Marie, MICM — ‘Virtue is the Order of Love’: Charity as Informing the Catholic Worldview


In this talk, Brother André Marie, M.I.C.M., Prior of the Slaves of the Immaculate Heart of Mary, sets out to liberate the exalted concept of “love” from the false modern conceptions that have been attached to it. Calling upon and incorporating the teachings of such masters as St. Thomas, St. Augustine, St. Maximus the Confessor, Dante, Josepf Pieper, and Dom Gueranger, Brother grounds his audience in the theologically orthodox understanding of love, first within the Blessed Trinity itself, then as extended towards man as the microcosm of creation, looking finally at the Church as the locus of God’s love on earth. “We are in a time of great and intense hatred,” Brother argues. “What we need to do is rise to the occasion—to a life perfected in charity.”
