Among the many converts made by the Apostle of the Rocky Mountains, Fr. De Smet (1801-1873), “Many of those baptized died saintly deaths. A girl twelve years of age exclaimed at the moment of death: ‘How beautiful! How beautiful! I see the heavens opening and the Mother of God is calling me to come!’ Then turning to those about her she said: ‘Heed what the Black Robes tell you, for they speak the truth; they will come and in this place build a house of prayer.’” (The Life of Fr. De Smet, p. 124.)
St. Ephraim (350): “… we are anointed in Baptism, whereby we bear His seal.”
