Cardijn’s homage to Gabrielle Petit

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

And the original French:
