All Lasallian educational works throughout the world today trace their origin to Saint John Baptist de La Salle (1651-1719) and the Institute of the Brothers of the Christian Schools of which he was the founder. Using selected highlights of material presented in workshops across the globe, the author traces the continuity between the founding vision and the vitality of the Lasallian movement today - a movement characterized by a transformational power that enabled it to survive its suppression in the country of its origin in 1792, its reinstatement in 1803 and its eventual spread into all the continents so that 96% of those associated in this movement today are not members of the Brotherhood as such but see themselves in different ways as sharers in the same Lasallian heritage. A Facilitator Guide (Appendix A) encourages use of this text in various forms of dialogue about the past, present and future of the Lasallian community.
