Sts. Isaac Jogues, Jean de Brebeuf, and Companions
(Feast Day October 19)
D. 1642 – 1649As a young Jesuit, Isaac Jogues taught literature in France. He gave up that career to work among the Huron Indians in the New World, and, in 1636, he and his companions, under the leadership of Jean de Brébeuf, arrived in Quebec. The Hurons were constantly warred upon by the Iroquois, and, in a few years, Father Jogues was captured by the Iroquois and imprisoned for 13 months. An unexpected chance for escape came to Isaac Jogues through the Dutch, and he returned to France, bearing the marks of his sufferings. But his zeal led him back once more to the fulfillment of his dreams. In a few months, he sailed for his missions among the Hurons. In 1646, he set out for Iroquois country in the belief that a recently signed peace treaty would be observed. He was captured by a Mohawk war party, and, on October 18, Father Jogues was killed.
Jean de Brébeuf was a French Jesuit who came to Canada at the age of 32 and labored there for 24 years. He went back to France when the English captured Quebec in 1629 and expelled the Jesuits but returned four years later. Although medicine men blamed the Jesuits for a smallpox epidemic among the Hurons, Jean remained with them. He composed catechisms and a dictionary in the Huron language and saw 7,000 converted before his death in 1649. Having been captured by the Iroquois at Sainte Marie, near Georgian Bay, Canada, Father Brébeuf died after four hours of extreme torture.
Remembering St. Isaac Jogues and Companions
Lord Jesus, you won the heart of St. Isaac Jogues and helped him grow as a caring, courageous person. He dedicated his life to you by proclaiming the Good News of salvation for all people to others. Remembering him, may we all grow in faith and have the same courage to proclaim the Good News to those around us. Help each of us to be strong and gentle messengers of your love. Amen.
St. Isaac Jogues and Companions, pray for us!
