St. Isaac Jogues Martyr
St. Isaac Jogues was martyred in North America while
on a mission by the Jesuits to the Huron Indians in
Canada. The Hurons accepted St. Isaac but the Huron's
enemy, the Mohawk tribe, captured Saint Isaac and tortured
him, cutting off his thumbs. He was save by Dutchmen
and returned to France.
The following year, St. Isaac was returning to the Mohawk
tribe but was blamed for a sickness that was spreading
throughout the Mohawk people. St. Isaac was stripped,
slashed with knives, killed with a tomahawk, and beheaded.
St. Isaac Jogues Quote
"My confidence is placed in God who does not need
our help for accomplishing his designs. Our single endeavor
should be to give ourselves to the work and to be faithful
to him, and not to spoil his work by our shortcomings."
