5 MONSIGNOR, ASK THE KING NIULIKI TO TAKE YOU IN AS HIS GUESTS. TOM WILL BE YOUR INTERPRETER. BUT IT’S NECESSARY…

6 On the road to Alo… I’LL TELL THEM: «THE KING OF WALLIS HAS ACCEPTED TWO ‘’PARENTS’’ OF YOU» HOPEfully WE’LL BE WELL RECEIVED…

7 The royal council reviews the proposal. Maligi, Prime Minister, expresses his opinion. THESE FOREIGNERS WILL BRING CHAOS TO US. IN SIGAVE, WHITES DRINK AND FIGHT… THEY SUPPORT THE KING VATAÏ!

8 THEY ARE «FALANI»: FROM THE COUNTRY OF NAPOLEON! YES, MATALA, THEY WILL BRING US THE WEALTH

10 UNTIL THE LOW TIDE WILL ALLOW THE RETURN, THE KING OFFERS THE SPECTACLE OF A DANCE WE’D BETTER RECEIVE THESE WHITE PEOPLE WELL. THEIR LEADER, THE “EPIKOPO”, PROMISED TO HELP US

11 THE KING AGREES, THEY WILL BE HIS CHILDREN AND HIS HOUSE WILL BE YOURS TELL HIM OUR THANK YOU! MAY THE PEACE OF GOD BE WITH HIM!

14 THE «RAIATEA» IS PREPARED TO LEAVE… GOOD BYE MONSIGNOR! COME BACK, AS PROMISED, IN SIX MONTHS GOOD LUCK IN NEW ZEALAND FOR THE THIRD MISSION…

15 TOM*, YOU WILL STAY WITH US * British sailor, widower of a woman from Futuna AT LEAST, THE FURNITURE IS NOT COMPLICATED… THESE BEAUTIFUL TAPAS ARE PREPARED BY THE WOMEN AT ALO, THE KING RESERVES A SPACE IN HIS CABIN FOR THEM

16 NIGHT HAS FALLEN, IT’S TIME TO PRAY THE ROSARY AND YOU JEAN-MARIE, THEY CALL YOU «SOANÉ MALIA»… HERE, ‘’HAIL MARY’’ IS SAID «ALOFA MALIA»

17 SOME DAYS LATER, AT ALO WHAT ENTHUSIASM! THEIR SCREAMS SHAKE THE HILLS! THEY’RE GOING TO BUILD THE CABIN IN RECORD TIME! YES, BUT WE’LL FEEL THE GUTTERS!

18 HERE THEY ARE ALREADY WITH THE LUGGAGE YOU’D BETTER WATCH THEM… YOU’RE ON THE GOOD SIDE OF THE KING :IT’S TORTOISE, IT’S FOR YOU IT SMELLS FAMOUSLY!

19 TELL THE KING THAT IT’S EXCELLENT!

20 THE NEXT DAY… THIS IS FOR THOSE WHO BUILT THE BEAUTIFUL CABIN. THE KING TELLS YOU THAT HE IS HAPPY AS A KING!

21 A BIT LATER, ON THE WAY TO SIGAVE LET'S GO TO GREET NUKU, KING OF LAVA, AND SAM, WHO HAS BEEN VERY USEFUL FOR US WE SHOULD ALSO MEET WITH JONES. HE HAS A SCHOONER.

22 WE’RE VERY PLEASED TO WELCOME PÉTÉLO AT THE HOUSE OF THE KING VANAÏ, HE’S AT HIS HOUSE. IF PÉTÉLO WANTS A BOAT, I CAN SELL HIM ONE.

23 ABOVE NUKU I HOPE THAT THERE WILL BE NO MORE WAR HERE UP THERE, THERE IS A SMALL FORT TO TAKE REFUGE DURING THE WARS

24 THE KING VANAÏ SEEMS WELL DISPOSED TOWARDS NIULIKI DO NOT RELY ON IT TOO MUCH!

25 + WELL DONE! THEN IT’S MY TURN I’VE ASKED SOANE MALIA TO SHAVE ME. IT’S DIFFERENT THAN WITH OUR SHELLS… AT ALO

26 IN THE MEANWHILE, AT POÏ, A PATIENT… THE REMEDIES OF ATUA SOGIA DO NOTHING. I’LL GO TO ALO TO LOOK FOR THE MAN IN THE BLACK DRESS…

27 HE SAYS THAT GOD IS EATING HIS LEG IT’S VERY SWOLLEN, BUT WHAT CAN I DO WITHOUT MEDICINE? I’LL COME BAK WITH RED WATER

28 OH MY GOD! ALL THESE PEOPLE WHO DIE WITHOUT BAPTISM! OH YES…! MANY SKIN DISEASES, BOILS… ON THE WAY BACK…

29 IT’S THE EVENING OF DECEMBER 7, 1837 TOMORROW, I’LL CELEBRATE THE MASS BEFORE SUNRISE AND THE «KAVA» THE FIRST MASS IN FUTUNA! I’LL TAKE AWAY THE TROUBLESOME PEOPLE

30 THE FEAST OF THE IMMACULATE CONCEPTION

31 In the afternoon, during the walk, the nostalgia stirs memories… WHAT A JOY TO HAVE BEEN ABLE TO JOIN US TO ALL THE OTHER MARISTS! HAS IT BEEN A LONG TIME SINCE YOU THOUGHT TO DEVOTE YOURSELF TO MARY?

32 WHEN I WAS SEVEN, I LOOKED AFTER OUR TWENTY COWS AND GOATS. IN THE QUIET FIELDS, IT WAS EASY TO PRAY.

33 THEN, I WENT TO SCHOOL AND I STUDIED THE CATECHISM WITH MONSIGNOR TROMPIER… Pedro, has progresado mucho. Tienes 13 años. ¿No has pensado nunca hacerte sacerdote? Sería un buen momento para ir al seminario… si tus padres lo aprueban. PETER, YOU’VE MADE MUCH PROGRESS. YOU’RE 13, IT’S TIME TO ENTER THE MINOR SEMINARY IF YOUR PARENTS AGREE…

34 IN 1823, PETER ENTERED THE MINOR SEMINARY OF MEXIMIEUX. MONSIGNOR LORAS IS THE DIRECTOR… YOU KNOW MY PROJECT: SET OUT ON MISSION TO LOUISIANA, IN AMERICA WE WILL JOIN YOU. I PROMISE, CLAUDE BRET, DENIS MAITREPIERRE AND ME

35 THE YEAR OF MY BIRTH! I THOUGHT ABOUT BEING MISSIONARY IN THE YEAR OF MY FIRST COMMUNION, IN 1817

36 AFTER 4 YEARS IN A PARISH, I WAS IN BELLEY WHERE COLIN WAS THE DIRECTOR: IT WAS LIKE LIVING THE SPIRIT OF THE BEGINNINGS OF THE CHURCH

37 M. CHAMPAGNAT THEN FOUNDED THE LITTLE BROTHERS OF MARY … AND JEANNE-MARIE CHAVOIN THE MARIST SISTERS, THERE WAS MOVEMENT EVERYWHERE!

38 Fr. CHANEL AND Fr. BOURDIN, YOU WILL ACCOMPANY ME TO ROME TO PRESENT THE RULES OF THE SOCIETY OF MARY TO THE POPE AUGUST 1833 FATHER COLIN

39 «IT WAS A WONDERFUL TRIP! MARSEILLE, THE BOAT, CIVITAVECCHIA ROME. GREGORY XVI AND THE CARDINALS…»

40 THE SOCIETY WAS APPROVED WHEN FR. COLIN ACCEPTED THE MISSIONS IN OCEANIA. EVERYTHING RUSHED! AND AFTER DREAMING OF AMERICA AND INDIA… YOU’RE LOST HERE!

41 NOW WE’LL PREPARE THE CHRISTMAS MASS. THE KING AGREES AND HE’S EVEN COMING. BE SURE THAT HE WILL BE OBSERVING YOU!

42 1837: THE FIRST CHRISTMAS IS PREPARED IN THE HOUSE OF THE KING FIX THE CROSS ABOVE THE ALTAR

43 THEY ARE HITTING THE SACRED TRUNK! LOOK WHAT THEY’RE DOING! FAKAVÉLIKÉLÉ DOESN’T WORRY AT ALL!

44 WE’LL KNOW HOW TO DEFEND OURSELVES, FALEMAA. BUT LOOK, ALL IS QUIET HOW BEAUTIFUL! I’LL LOOK FOR MY PARENTS! * CHRISTIAN RELIGION THE MEN OF LOTU* HAVE CHANGED EVERYTHING WHERE THEY’VE COME

45 Dec 28th, 1837 : Feast of the Holy Innocents, My 12th mass in Futuna. The King of Sigave attends with his leaders. The lunch of the King has place in our small house.

46 Friday December 29th: I go to Poï to assist one patient. I’ll sleep near the Great Chief of the Valley (Niuliki).

47 Saturday December 30th: I visit several families. Many people talk me about their illnesses, but I have nothing to treat them. I also visit some corners of the valley. I go back to Alo with Niuliki who stays to sleep at our house.

48 Sunday December 31st: the Great Chief is shaved by the brother and leaves before the 13th mass I have the good fortune to celebrate.

49 WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 3rd. 16TH MASS. OUR NEIGHBOURS GO TO PICK COCOS NUTS TO ALOFI WITH MI LITTLE CANOE. THE DAY IS QUIET...

50 TAKE UP YOUR ARMS! HE WILL NOT THREATEN SAM AGAIN! JANUARY 23rd, GREAT NERVOUSNESS AT FIKAVI

51 HE DEFENDS THE MEN OF LAVA. HE’S NOT WITH US. IT’S ROKOTA WHO HAS FIRED. WE’LL CATCH HIM! MY FRIENDS, WHAT A PITY! DON’T MAKE THINGS WORSE! THE FATHER CROSSES THE MOUNTAIN TO CALM DOWN THE MEN OF FIKAVI

52 * THE WINNERS IT’S CLEAR THAT HE SIDES WITH SAM, DON’T THINK IN THIS WAY! I’D BE DEAD IF I HAD NOT ACT BEFORE THEM! HE COMES BACK TO THE OTHER PART OF THE MOUNTAIN «SWEATING BLOOD AND WATER». IN NUKU, HE STAYS IN THE HOUSE OF SAM. THE MEN OF MALO…*

53 DON’T GET INVOLVED! A BOAT IS GOING TO LEAVE TO WALLIS, TAKE IT! GOOD IDEA! INFORM THE FATHER BATAILLON OF THE NEWS: HE DOESN’T KNOW THAT WE’RE IN FUTUNA. I’LL STAY WITH TOM.

54 THE FATHER EMBARKS ON MARCH 25th. DURING HIS ABSENCE… WE’LL TAKE THEIR THINGS TO POÏ, FAR FROM SIGAVÉ ET VANAÏ IN USE THEY MAKE OF SMALL SERVICES, RIGHT? WE MUST BE CAREFUL! PÉTÉLO USUALLY GOES TO VANAÏ.

55 MARCH 28th, OPPOSITE THE COAST OF WALLIS… DO YOU KNOW THE TWO FALANI? IS IT TRUE? IT’S THE FATHER CHANEL! OF COURSE, FATHER BATAILLON COME ON BOARD QUICKLY!

56 HERE ARE THE GIFTS OF THE KING NIULIKI! WHAT A PLEASURE TO HAVE YOU NEAR US, IN FUTUNA!

57 WITH YOUR HELP, WE’LL BE ABLE TO FINISH OUR HOUSE. THE BROTHER JOSEPH IS GODD AT HANDICRAFTS I’M NOT AS SKILLED AS HIM, BUT I’LL DO MY BEST

58 LOOK AT MY BOOKS. IT SEEMS THAT WALLISIAN RESEMBLES FUTUNIAN… THIS WILL BE VERY USEFUL TO ME! I CAN HARDLY MAKE MYSELF UNDERSTOOD…

59 NOW, RELIGION IS RECOGNIZED BY EVERYONE AND I HAVE A GROUP OF CATECHUMENS I’LL BE HAPPY TO SPEND MY EASTER HOLIDAYS HERE. THEN YOU’LL COME TO FUTUNA!

60 AND THEN, WHAT ABOUT THAT WAR? THEY MADE PEACE, BUT SOANÉ MALIA AND TOM ARE NO LONGER IN ALO ON APRIL 26th, THEY RETURN TO SIGAVÉ AGAIN…

61 AFTER GOING AROUNG THE ISLAND, SOANÉ MALIA AND TOM COME BACK TO SIGAVÉ AH! I’M GLAD TO SEE YOU AGAIN! I WAS TOLD YOU WERE PRISONERS IN ALOFI. NIULIKI HAS RECEIVED US AT HIS HOUSE IN POÏ. HE WAITS FOR YOU TOMORROW…

62 HERE, IT’S PARTY EVERY DAY: KAVA, FEASTS, DANCES, SPEECHES… IT’S KATOAGA!

63 HERE YOU’LL BUILD A HOUSE FOR PÈTÈLO. MORE BEAUTIFUL THAN THE ONE OF ALO. THEN, WE’LL USE BAMBOOS WITH A DOOR AND WINDOWS

64 THE END OF THE FIRST PART I HOPED HE WOULD NOT RETURN FROM WALLIS MUSUMUSU, YOU FORGET THAT HE TREATED YOUR SON…
