Families of Nazareth Movement

 

About us

Families of Nazareth Movement (FNM) began in the early 1980’s in Poland where a small community of people found themselves searching for a way leading to spiritual growth and sanctity. It then spread rapidly beyond the borders of Poland and it is now present on all the continents. Its members seek a radical way of entrusting themselves to God through the Blessed Virgin Mother. They follow the example of such spiritual masters as Saint John of the Cross, Saint Therese of Avila, Saint Therese of Lisieux, and Saint Maximilian Kolbe. In the Movement, a special emphasis is placed on the spirituality of Nazareth – following Jesus in his poverty and humility.

The movement was officially approved by Church authorities in Poland in the year 1985. The Movement was the fruit of Fr. Tadeusz Dajczer’s own spiritual search and meditations, as well as his long-time ministry among university students.

Put into your heart, my smallest child, that the thing that frightened you, the thing that afflicted you is nothing: Do not let it disturb you…

Am I not here, I who am your mother?

Are you not under my shadow and protection?

Am I not the source of your joy?

Are you not in the hollow of my mantle, in the crossing of my arms?

Do you need something more?

Our Lady of Guadalupe, 1531.
