Martyrdom of Saint John the Baptist
O God, who willed that Saint John the Baptist should go ahead of your Son both in his birth and in his death, grant that, as he died a Martyr for truth and justice, we, too, may fight hard for the confession of what you teach. We ask this in your name, Amen.
Saint John Baptist de La Salle…pray for us.
Live Jesus in our hearts…forever!

About Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea: Professor Aronnax, and her assistant, Conseil, are tasked by the US government to discover what kind of creature is attacking ships across the oceans in 1866. Along with Ned Land, king of harpooners, they are quickly introduced to the cause of all the destruction – The uncanny submarine, Nautilus, and it’s captain, the mysterious Nemo. What begins as a hunt becomes an undersea journey where our heroes must battle countless adversaries both human and monstrous along the way, all while witnessing the possibilities of science and the dark depths of the human mind.
