October 19 - Saint Isaac Jogues, Saint John Brebeuf and martyr companions

Of course, no one has one thousand lives to give them away, but Isaac's desire to fulfill the will of God and to proclaim his glory was such that he would give his life and much more if he had it. Isaac, John and the other four Jesuits evangelized the upper part of the continent, living among Hurons and preaching the Gospel to them. The Iroquois, who were enemies of the Hurons, tortured and killed the missionaries. After their death, other missionaries evangelized that region of America.
