Salvatorian brother called to social justice ministry

Catherine Jozwik reported, special to your Catholic Herald, on her interview of Salvatorian Brother Blaire Mazur.
He and the Salvatorians have worked for many local shelters, including Repairers of the Breach, a homeless shelter in downtown Milwaukee, and the Cathedral Women’s Shelter, a center for homeless and abused women.

There was a "God or the Girl" prelude.
Around age 19, after graduating from a public high school, Br. Blaire felt a calling to religious life. His plans were put on hold, however, after he met a young woman, Briana, and fell in love. Br. Blaire and Briana dated for three and a half years, but around the third year of their courtship, Br. Blaire felt God calling him back to religious life. While working on a social justice committee in New Jersey, Br. Blaire realized that he was meant for that lifestyle.

He realized that he could not create "a happy balance between ministry and a relationship" and that God came above everything else.
