Apostle of Jesus Christ
Harm no-one, be useful to all
Peter Fourier teaches us his spirit, his way to live the Gospel, his outlook on other people and on the world. This outlook remains relevant today :
- he has a clear view of his times, of social injustice, of the abuses of the Church in his day.
- he looks with compassion on children, women, the poor, the outcast.
This is where his initiatives come from, his work for the fair distribution of goods and respect for rights. Also his passion for education: he teaches us to look on children in a way that will help them grow: with affection, respect, understanding, realism, broad-mindedness, and in the Gospel spirit of joy, simplicity and charity.
