Scene 4: Brothers Community

 
1. Statue of St. La Salle
Location : Foyer to Brothers Community, La Salle College
 
This statue greets the visitor to the Brother's floor. La Salle is pointing with one hand to the heavens and with the other holds a parchment entitled 'Rules of the Brothers of the Christian Schools'.
 
La Salle wears the traditional black robe, rabat and mantle.

2.  Carving of St. La Salle and Two Children
Location : Corridor of Brothers Community, La Salle College
Artist : Unknown
 
It's a pity we do not know the creator of this lovely piece. I get the impression that it has a Filipino artist's touch but could well be wrong.
 
A somewhat youthful-looking La Salle stands behind two students, one perhaps a Primary boy in shorts and the other an older secondary school student. La Salle is protecting them with his mantle and his hands.
 
Each student carries a book with the younger one in the process of reading. La Salle himself placed great emphasis on the importance of reading.
 
The uniforms of the students have badges attached, showing the star and chevrons which are common to Lasallian schools throughout the world.
 
If you want to view this work of art, you may have to get permission of a Brother resident!

3. The Tabernacle
Location : Brothers Chapel, La Salle College
Artist : Francisco Borboa
 
The tabernacle contains the sacred hosts and therefore the Real Presence of God.
 
The artist uses coloured mosaic tiles to depict loaves of bread in a basket, a chalice full of wine and a bisecting cross.
 
The inscription reads HIC EST which are the first two words of the Latin 'HIC EST ENIM CALIX SANGUINIS MEI', or 'This is the cup of my Blood', words used at the Consecration in every Mass.

4. Stained - Glass Windows
Location : Brothers Chapel, La Salle College
Artist : Francisco Borboa
 
The two main themes in these windows are the Sermon on the Mount and the Last Supper. They were completed in 1979 in time for the opening of the new school building.
 
They are best viewed in early morning or late evening. They show the unmistakable touch of the artist, Mr. Borboa.
 
 
5. Stations of the Cross
Location : Brothers Chapel, La Salle College
Artist : Francisco Borboa
 
The stations are subtly etched in black on to square wood panels. The Passion and Death of Jesus is depicted in the traditional 14 stations but Mr. Borboa adds a 15th with the Resurrection of Christ.
 
Any one or all stations lend themselves to meditation.

 
6. The Prie-dieus
Location : Brothers Chapel, La Salle College
 
These are the "kneeling-desks" for prayer, commonly used by monks and religious.
 
The prie-dieus in La Salle come from the old school chapel, are sturdily made of hard wood and a few have the name LA SALLE etched in black at the front.

7. Statue of Our Lady
Location : Brothers Chapel, La Salle College
 
This is Our Lady, Queen of Heaven, wearing a golden crown.
 
In her hands she lovingly holds the baby Jesus who has his arms outstretched to welcome the world.
 
Our Lady's face is calm and serene.
 
This statue came from the old school.

8. Wrought-Iron Crucifixes
Location : La Salle College Chapel and Brothers Chapel
 
Artist : Francisco Borboa
 
These floor stand-up, wrought-iron, crucifixes are pretty stark reminders of the suffering of Christ on the cross. 
 
Christ is silhouetted in angular intensity and this may arouse our sympathy.

 
9. Personnel Book
Location : Brothers Community, La Salle College
 
This is an invaluable record of every Brother who taught in our Lasallian schools since their foundation. It records date of arrival, qualifications, family data and final whereabouts of the Brother concerned.
 
This register of data is commonly referred to by the Brothers as the "black book" because of the colour of the cover. The official title is in fact in French as follows:
 
Registre 
de
Personnel Religieux
 
Access to these records is through the respective Brother Directors.
