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)

Video • The Altar Server “Must See”
published 25 February 2016 by Andrew Leung

NE OF MY DUTIES as a seminarian is to serve Masses at the parish. Altar serving is such an important and meaningful liturgical ministry. I have been doing it for fifteen years now and it helps me a lot in my spiritual growth. This video that I am sharing today was published in 2013, but I just saw it for the first time. I agree with everything he says and I hope you do too.



I hope you enjoy this video. While this video gives us a lot of insights about altar serving, it also helps us to reflect on our relationships with God. Here are some questions we can ask ourselves:

- Am I acting reverently and actively participating in my role at Mass?

- Do I dress up appropriately and worthily when I attend Mass?

- Do I pray everyday? Or do I only show up to Mass on Sundays?
