“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

Have you heard of St Clelia?
published 5 December 2015 by Veronica Brandt

St Clelia Barbieri HE TRIALS OF THIS WORLD are hardly to be compared with the joys to come – including the joy of singing with the Saints!

Reading Andrew’s post on St John Paul II’s singing voice reminded me of a recent saint whose voice joins in with her sisters in singing the Divine Office around the world. You can read about St Clelia Barbieri here with a focus on the miraculous.

There is also a fantastic sermon on St Clelia and appreciating the liturgy accompanied by helpful photos below. You might recognise the voice from Audio Sancto.
