This brief introductory overview of the spirituality inherited from John Baptist de La Salle, Founder of the Institute of the Brothers of the Christian Schools, was originally prepared for the consideration of participants of the SIEL (Lasallian Studies) session conducted in Rome in 2012-2013. Through careful analysis of three sources (the essentially autobiographical Memoir on the Beginnings, the third rule from Rules I Have Imposed on Myself, and De La Salle’s dying words) the author provides a basis from which individuals or groups may productively engage in further study of De La Salle’s writings and spirituality.
