SSCC Shot during the Commune



Ladislas Radigue (1823-1871). Son of wealthy farmers in the village of Boisaumont (France). Cheerful by nature, simple, educated. For twenty years he was the Master of novices. "He was the living rule of the Community, a model of regularity," according to the testimony of his former novices. In Commune times he reveals himself as a true leader for the community. At the time of his death he was a General Councillor and prior of the Mother House.
 
 

Polycarp Tuffier (1807-1871). He was a natural of Malzieu (France), in the high plateaus of Margeride. His expansive nature was charming, enriched with a solid theological and humanistic education. He was joyful and knew how to spread it around him. "He went about doing" is what those who knew him say. He was also a General Councillor. He said: "Who knows what the Good God has in store for us?"

 

 
 
Marcellin Rouchouze (1810-1871). Born in Saint-Julien (France), he was a brother of the Superior General, Euthyme Rochouze. He was a born teacher and excelled at making himself available to students. Of fragile health and great humility, he performed the most important services with discretion. He was General Councillor and General Secretary.
 
 
 


Frézal Tardieu (1814-1871). Born in Chasseradès (France), he was a modest and active man, who had the gift of forgetting himself and stepping back from the works he had founded or animated. This silent and humble religious would show himself to be an active and daring man. He prepared Brother Damien De Veuster for perpetual profession which, according to the Apostle to the Lepers, profoundly marked him. He was a General Councillor.
