“From six in the evening, his martyrdom had continued through the ghastly night until nine o'clock in the morning. After fifteen hours of torture rarely if ever surpassed in the bloody annals of the Iroquois, the soul of Gabriel Lalemant was freed from its charred and mutilated prison and summoned to join his comrade Jean de Brébeuf in the radiant splendor of God. March 17th, 1649, was the date; for Brébeuf it had been the sixteenth.”
— Fr. John A. O'Brien, speaking of St. Gabriel Lalemant

Dom Gajard on Vernacular Adaptations & Pius XII Psalter
published 4 December 2013 by Jeff Ostrowski

FOUND THE FOLLOWING letter engaging. It was written by Dom Gajard, perhaps the greatest Gregorian conductor of all time. It was translated by a Jesuit priest named Paul Callens, who taught Gregorian chant in Corpus Christi, TX, for many years. Click here to view a picture of Fr. Callens conducting his Schola.
