I was never taught about the early Christian Saints growing up LDS. This one took me by surprise. Then I was fortunate to learn about others. Lives forgotten are very good to ponder. Since my wife is Catholic from Quebec and has Mohawk and Huron in her blood I had an epiphany on how the Gospel has truly been spread. I have an utmost respect for those who have spread it utilizing the Holy Spirit and the Church, the Body of Christ Jesus.
