Pilgrimage 2009 - North American Martyrs, Canada
   By Fr. Paul Ward



When the early colonialists dare not venture from the Atlantic shores, eight Jesuits were already a thousand miles inland in North America, preaching the Gospel to the native Indians. They all gave their lives in violent martyrdom. We’re going to visit their Shrine in Midland, Ontario, to learn from these great ones what it is to live and die for Christ the Lord.
