DARIEN--The future site of the Georgia Martyrs monument received a blessing Sept. 15 after Mass at Nativity of our Lady Church in Darien.

 

At the Mass, Father Pablo Migone preached a homily in which he compared Saint Paul, the author of the day’s second reading, to the Gospel about the Prodigal Son and finally to the five Franciscan martyrs who await beatification, the next stage in their cause for canonization.

“It was hot. It was buggy. I can’t imagine what it was like 450 years ago,” said Father Drew Larkin of his pilgrimage to St. Catherines Island Feb. 20 where two of the five Franciscan friars, were martyred in Coastal Georgia.The Mission Santa Catalina established by the friars to minister to the indigenous Guale people (pronounced wall-ee) is located on a limited-access private island.

The Pentecost collection for the Catholic Communication Campaign, started in 1979, is the only national collection to designate 50 per cent of its proceeds to stay in the local diocese and 50 per cent to communications efforts of the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops.

 

This year, the Diocese of Savannah share will go towards costs associated with promoting the Cause for Beatification of the Georgia Martyrs.

Emotion briefly overcame Father Charles Byrd during his homily commemorating the 420th anniversary of the martyrdom of Friar Pedro de Corpa and his four companions on October 24.

 

Standing on the spot on St. Catherines Island where two of the friars were murdered, the pastor of Our Lady of the Mountains Parish in Jasper, Georgia, said that a sixth friar who witnessed the tragedy refused to send word to the King of Spain of what he saw.
