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.

"Upon the road, René was always occupied with God. His words and the discourses he held were all expressive of submission to the commands of Divine Providence, and showed a willing acceptance of the death which God was sending him. He gave himself to God as a sacrifice, to be reduced to ashes by the fires of the Iroquois, which that good Father's hand would kindle. He sought the means to bless Him in all things and everywhere. Covered with wounds as he himself was, Goupil dressed the wounds of other persons, of the enemies who had received some blows in the fight as well as those of the prisoners. He opened the vein for a sick Iroquois. And he did it all with as much charity as if he had done it to persons who were his best friends."
— St. Isaac Jogues (writing in 1643)

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.
