It's almost upon us!"" yelled a frantic voice aboard the Saint Joseph, as the iceberg neared the ship. The huge mountain of grey-green ice looked like a floating castlewhich would shatter the poor little wooden ship in a moment or two. Just then the helmsman, confused and panic-stricken, turned his wheel in the wrong direction, bringing the iceberg nearer! Its the end of everything! groaned the Captain. Gods will be done, prayed Mother Marie, as the collision loomed closer. If God wished her to drown in the icy Atlantic before ever reaching New France (Canada), His Holy Will be done. Yet perhapsFather Vimont quickly gave general absolution to the passengers and crew. Then he made a hurried vow to the Blessed Virgin Mary. One of the nuns began the Litany of Loreto, and a trembling chorus of voices rose to Heaven: Holy Mary, pray for us! Holy Mother of God, pray for us! Holy Virgin of Virgins, pray for us! This book tells what happened next. It also tells about the Indian children, the savage Iroquois, and the great fireplus the codfish, the lice and the bear grease! All in all, this is a great story of saintly Mother Marie of the Incarnationand of how the holy Catholic Faith came to Canada.
