A quintessential missionary

 

Brother Aimar belongs to the type of missionary who interpreted God’s call in the words spoken formerly to Abram, “Get thee out of thy country, and from thy kindred, and from thy father’s house, unto a land that I will show thee” (Genesis 12:1).

They cut off all relations with their country of origin and family to become part and parcel of their adopted country.

The only correspondence he was known to have during the last 20 years of his life was with his sister, who was the superior of an orphanage run by a congregation of sisters near Albi, France.

This is a tribute to all brothers who taught at La Salle, but Brother Aimar has come to be regarded as the quintessential Brother of the Christian School.
