Selection from a painting of the Martyrdom of Sebastian  Rale, done in 1941 by Mother Margaret Mary Nealis, R.S.C.J. (1876-1957), hanging in the Jesuit Residence of Cheverus High School in Portland, Maine.

The 275th Anniversary of his Martyrdom was August 23, 1999.

Eternal Father, grant that Sebastian Rale, martyr of the faith among the Abenakis of Maine, will be raised to the altar of the blessed. Through his intercession, we pray that your divine favor will be manifest among us so that we may return praise to your eternal glory. We ask this through Our Lord Jesus Christ Your Son Who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit One God world without end. Amen.
