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)

THOUGHT I KNEW a lot about the Extraordinary Form—but just watch Fr. James Fryar, FSSP, explaining fantastic information I never realized:


Fr. Fryar is talking about the new FSSP Apostolate in Los Angeles.

I especially liked where he gives concrete examples of how the Extraordinary Form has influenced Ordinary Form parishes.
