Far from dreading an encounter with the Iroquois, Fr. Garnier often told us he would be quite content to fall into the hands of the Iroquois and remain their prisoner if—while they were torturing him—he at least had a chance of instructing them as long as his torments lasted. If they allowed him to live, it would afford him a golden opportunity to work for their conversion, which was now impossible, since the gateway to their country was closed as long as they were our enemies.
— Father Ragueneau (Jesuit Relations)

In Paradisum | Pray for Peace
published 11 September 2013 by Richard J. Clark

N THIS DAY let us pray for peace and for those who died before us. Let us pray for those who have suffered great loss and for those who suffer because they do not know the love of God.

Let us thank God for His great blessings and for His protection and guidance.

Pray unceasingly for those who protect us and watch over us each and every day. Pray for their families.

Pray always.
