About this blogger:
Father Gabriel Lalemant won the crown the martyrdom on 17 March 1649. The smallest and most delicate in health among all the Jesuit missionaries, he had in six months won, by his iron will and unwavering determination, a martyr's end, in companionship with the spiritual and physical giant of the missions, Jean de Brébeuf.

"The Consilium is merely an assembly of people, many of them incompetent, and others well advanced on the road to novelty. The discussions are extremely hurried. Discussions are based on impressions and the voting is chaotic. […] Many of those who have influenced the reform […] have no love, and no veneration of that which has been handed down to us. They begin by despising everything that is actually there. This negative mentality is unjust and pernicious, and unfortunately, Paul VI tends a little to this side. They have all the best intentions, but with this mentality they have only been able to demolish and not to restore."

A Prayer For The Mission of CCW
published 23 February 2013 by Corpus Christi Watershed

A beautiful prayer was written for CCW by Fr. David Friel:

LMIGHTY GOD, We approach You as servants―servants of Your will and servants of the sacred liturgy. How grateful we are for the opportunity to give You praise.

Make us united in our work so that we can effectively accomplish the good You have established for us to do. Give us clarity so that we may proceed in the way that will bring You the most honor. Grant us humility to recognize Your will and sufficient courage to submit ourselves to it.

You, Father, are the great Artist of creation. In You, therefore, we find our highest model and our perfect end. Make us good artists, good stewards, and good disciples.

We invoke the intercession of the North American Jesuit martyrs, too. As you profited their labors with the conversion of souls, so now, in our time, use the work of the Corpus Christi Watershed to draw many souls to You, Who are Truth and Goodness and Beauty, Itself.

We ask this through Christ our Lord. Amen.
