Returning home from Rome, Mgr. M. L, Roy, Archbishop of Quebec, talked to me in his cabin on board the Empress of Canada in Liverpool on Wednesday last.
He recalled his war years in this country and the many friends he made.
Travelling back from Rome, Mgr. Roy visited the European Canadian war graves and at Ortona, in Italy, he has arranged, in co-operation with the Archbishop of Montreal, to restore a tiny village chapel to serve as a memorial where visiting priests may offer Mass.
Consecrated Bishop for the diocese of Three Rivers, in 1946, Mgr. Roy became Archbishop of Quebec a year later and now has a flock of 600,000 Catholics in 280 parishes. His only English speaking parish in Quebec, with a population of some 3,000, is under the patronage of St. Patrick. He is Ordinary to the Canadian Forces and Chancellor and Royal Visitor to Laval University.
