“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

1965 Video • Dedication of an Irish Cathedral
published 17 February 2014 by Jeff Ostrowski

AM ALWAYS INTERESTED in old examples of film, as well as anything liturgical. You might enjoy seeing this 1965 dedication of a Cathedral in Ireland by Cardinal Richard Cushing, appointed legate of Pope Paul VI. His pronunciation of Latin toward the end is … not to be missed (more). By the way, during the Litany of the Saints, they chant Our Lady thrice, and the same for St. Nicholas.


The Cathedral of Our Lady Assumed into Heaven and St Nicholas, commonly known as Galway Cathedral, is a Roman Catholic cathedral in Galway, Ireland, and is one of the largest and most impressive buildings in the city. Construction began in 1958 on the site of the old city jail, and in 1965 was finally dedicated by to Our Lady Assumed into Heaven and St. Nicholas.
