Excerpt from Message

Cherie La Mere Lambin, Yesterday we visited the Catacombs and what in inspiration these are. The early Christians thought nothing of sacrificing their lives to preserve their faith. Thought the Basilica of St. Paul’s outside the walls had so many beautiful things – the pair of altars made of lapis lazuli and malachite and gold [illegible] – Mr. & Mrs. R. Seabrook
