"Brief Life History of St. Benedict Joseph Labre," published by the St. Labre Mission and Indian School, established
in April 1884 by Bishop Brondel of Helena, Montana, who had been at Rome
for the canonization of St Benedict Joseph in December 1881, and who was
so impressed by the life of the Saint that he decided to place this apostolic
work among the Northern Cheyenne Indians under his patronage.
