Recently, I posted an item on Gabrielle Petit, the World War I Belgian spy shot by the Germans in 1916.
And I mentioned that Cardijn had preached a Te Deum in her honour at the St Michel and Gudule Cathedral in Brussels.
This week I found the actual text of Cardijn’s homage to Gabrielle Petit in his archives.
Here it is in English
Tribute to Gabrielle Petit (Joseph Cardijn Digital Library)
And the original French:
Te Deum à Gabrielle Petit (Bibliothèque Numérique Joseph Cardijn)
