Brothers of Our Lady of Mercy

Victor Scheppers

Honor Deo, labor mihi, utilitas proximo. To God the honour, for me the labour, the profit for my fellow creatures. This is the slogan of our founding father. Can the task of a Christian be expressed more pithy? Being a useful instrument for our Lord at the service of others: that is the task for those who want to follow the Lord.

The slogan of Victor Scheppers at the entrance of the Institute of Scheppers in Wetteren.
