Our Lady Seat of Wisdom College is off on our annual pilgrimage to Martyrs’ Shrine in Midland, following the steps of Saints Jean de Brebeuf, Gabriel Lalemant and their companions to their witness for Christ in the Canadian wilderness of the 17th century, planting the Faith for the first time amongst in this rugged and fair land. The two aforementioned martyrs were put to death on March 16 and 17 respectively, 1649, and trudging through the snow in the wintry conditions help us relive in some small way what they did. They are the secondary patrons of Canada, after Saint Joseph, whose solemnity is also approaching.
We will take along our readers’ intentions, and please pray for all of us. There is much for which to intercede.
Holy Canadian Martyrs, orate pro nobis!
