Mr. Laurin knew the work of the Pilgrims of St. Michael through Bob and John Lambert of Springfield. The three men were veterans of World War II. They formed a very efficient trio in the battle of ideas against the financial dictatorship, in the work of the Pilgrims of St. Michael. They used the discipline and training they had acquired in the army, not to kill the enemy, but to bring them towards the road of truth in subscribing them to the Michael Journal.
Mr. Laurin was actively devoted to the apostolate for 18 years, going door to door to offer the Michael Journal to the families. He worked to enlighten them on the beauty of the Catholic faith, and to warn them of the injustice of the economic system of today that holds all people in the grip of debts that are impossible to pay.
He was a trucker and did long and hard days of work. Still, on the evenings and on weekends he found the strength to go to the door to door and distributing leaflets. At almost every Congress, during the years that they did the apostolate, the trio "Bob, John and Ralph" were proclaimed "champions of subscriptions." How many sacrifices this represented! Ralph Laurin was athirst for justice and is now satisfied, as the Beatitudes in the Bible promise.
A Mass was celebrated for the repose of the soul of our great apostle Ralph Laurin, in the chapel of the House of the Immaculate on May 10.
