This week in Church history

On this day in 1674, Bl. Francois de Montmorency-Laval was named the first bishop in North America when Clement X made him bishop of Quebec.

October 2 is the eighty-fourth anniversary of the founding of Opus Dei by St. Josemaria Escriva.

October 4 is thirty-fourth anniversary of the funeral of the Servant of God Pope John Paul I.

And October 5 is the thirty-third anniversary of the first visit to the White House by a Pope, when Bl. John Paul II went to have a chat with President Jimmy Carter there.

Thanks to our friends at the National Post, a Canadian newspaper, from whom this information came.
