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)

Epiphany Proclamation 2018
published 23 December 2017 by Veronica Brandt

Adoration of the Magi HRISTMAS MEANS many things to many people. Some are preparing roast turkey, duck or goose (or all three!) Some are practising Christmas Carols. Some are sending dozens of Christmas Cards to friends and relatives.

As Christmas approaches I am typing up the Epiphany Proclamation.

It doesn’t take long once I get around to it. Often there are little quirks owing to developments in the software over the intervening months. It can be frustrating, but overall it gives that warm glow of a job well done. Or is that just the weather here?

I HEREBY ANNOUNCE the release of the Proclamation of Moveable Feasts for 2018.

Merry Christmas!
