His one aim in life was to bring people to god and to bring God to people. He had been ordained a priest for the Dublin diocese before becoming a monk, and his memory lives on today in Dundrum, Dublin, where he spent some time as a curate, and in Clonliffe college where he was Professor of Philosophy for several years. However, it is as Abbot of Maredsous in Belgium that he is known to most people. Besides governing his monastery, Marmion travelled through out Belgium, France, England and Ireland preaching retreats. At the same time, he carried on a vast correspondence, offering spiritual advice to those who sought his help. There was a very human side to this saintly man.
