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.

“In all this mediaeval religious poetry there is much that we could not use now. Many of the hymns are quite bad, many are frigid compositions containing futile tricks, puns, misinterpreted quotations of Scripture, and twisted concepts, whose only point is their twist. But there is an amazing amount of beautiful poetry that we could still use. If we are to have vernacular hymns at all, why do we not have translations of the old ones?”
— Fr. Adrian Fortescue (d. 1923)

Congratulations, Fr. Hubert Coeurderoy!
published 2 July 2013 by Corpus Christi Watershed

ANY OF OUR READERS already know that the Second Edition of the Campion Missal will be available very soon. While we’re very excited about this, today we have something even more important to report.  Rev. Fr. Hubert Coeurderoy, who greatly assisted with the Campion project (and appears in the Solemn Mass photographs), was recently ordained to the priesthood!

Click here to view hundreds of beautiful pictures of the ordination, which took place in Europe. The other European members of the Priestly Fraternity of Saint Peter to be ordained were Fathers Charles Gauthey, André Hahn, Bertrand Lacroix, and Juan Tomás.

Believe it or not, Fr. Coeurderoy is actually related to the St. Antoine Daniel, one of Watershed’s patron saints.
