Joseph Benedict Marcellin Champagnat was born on May 20, 1789 and was the 9th out of 10 siblings.
On Marcellin's first day of school, one of his classmates was slapped because he got an answer wrong. He dropped out of school after his first day.
Then a priest shows up to his house asking if he would like to become a priest and Marcellin says yes. But sadly due to his failing grades, he was kicked out.
I'm sorry to tell you, but due to your grades you must leave.
Thinking over again that he really wants to do become a priest. He comes back and asks for a second chance, and they said yes.
Okay we'll give you one more chance.
Thank you sir! I'll try my hardest!
When Marcellin was giving a final blessing for a boy named Jean Baptiste Montagne, sadly Montagne didn't know who Jesus, Mary or God is.
So you don't have to be afraid God will watch you.
I don't understand .
Then Marcellin tells Montagne all of the basics of who God and all the saints are. He then asks Montagne if he believes him and he says yes. Marcellin then tells him he would come back in a few days but sadly Montagne passes away.
Yes, I believe you.
Do you believe my words?
Then Marcellin thinks about changing the schools and make them into more for learning than fear of learning. Soon he meets Jean-Marie Granjon and becomes the first member of a community of teaching Brothers.
Thank you for joining me help change the way of learning!
Yeah lets start walking over there we might find shelter!
They were stuck in a blizzard and the brother thinks that they might die. Marcellin says they should pray the Memorare, when suddenly in the distance they see a light.
