Relics of B. J. de Brébeuf, B. G. Lalemant, B. C. Garnier

These relics memorialize the Canadian Martyrs who gave their lives in the effort to carry the Christian message to the First Peoples of Canada. Their sense of purpose is perhaps best expressed by Brébeuf's instruction to his fellow missionaries: "You must love these Hurons, ransomed by the blood of the Son of God, as brothers."
