Auriesville Shrine

I had mentioned several time that I had ridden the bike path past the Shrine of Our Lady of Martyrs without stopping. Well, today I changed that: The Shrine commemorates Father Isaac Jogues, René Goupil, a Jesuit brother, and John Lalande, who lost their live at this site because of their faith in the 1640's. It was the Site of Ossernenon, the Main village of the Mohawks. Here is a marker for Fr. Joques: Three crosses for three saints: another view of the Mohawk river: There is quite a large Chapel here. I spent some time ion reflection, and thank the Lord for their lives: A pleasant day of rest.
