Visit the tomb of Frederic Ozanam in this video from VinFlix. Commentary by Fr. Joseph Agostino, C.M.

As explained in a previous Famvin article, the tomb of Blessed Frederic Ozanam is located in the crypt of the historic church of St. Joseph des Carmes in Paris. The church was the scene of some of the bloodiest massacres of ecclesiastics of the infamous Reign of Terror during the French Revolution. Visitors now see a much different tomb setting than the original 19th century design. The changes were done sometime in the mid-twentieth century. The mural above the tomb depicts the parable of the Good Samaritan.
