This paper seeks to exhibit the role of Mary in the Meditations of Saint John Baptist de La Salle and in some Lasallian documents of the Institute. It particularly focuses on De La Salle’s emphasis on the importance of developing the spirit of faith, an ardent zeal for service, and the unity among those who work in the mission. It aims to bring to light the various ways that De La Salle refers to Mary as a model for the Brothers to follow in carrying out their mission as Apostles of Christ.

This paper also seeks to present how present-day Lasallian religious educators can apply the Lasallian values of faith, service, and communion in mission in their work. It hopes to develop in them a deeper appreciation of their teaching profession as a contribution to the work of salvation by bringing to light the Good News of Jesus Christ in the life of the young people entrusted to their care, particularly those who are most in need.
