 Our Description

 

St. Isaac and the Indians

 

Milton Lomask

Vision Books

Over three hundred years ago, many Frenchmen came to the unknown forests along the St. Lawrence River. Most of them came in search of furs and wealth. But there were some-a handful of Jesuit missionaries-who came not to get, but to give. They wished to give the savage Indians the knowledge of God and of His love for them. One of these missionaries was Isaac Jogues, martyr and Saint.

This is the story of his dangerous and difficult life among the Indian tribes in their tree-dark country - of his work of conversion, of his efforts to teach the Indians rules of health and to set them free from their superstitious belief in the power of their medicine men. This is the inspiring story of his enslavement by the Mohawks, his daring escape, and finally, his death as a martyr for the Faith.

Patron Of: Canada, Americas

St. Isaac Jogues joined the Jesuits at Rouen, France, in 1624. He studied philosophy, as a Priest became a missionary to New France (Canada) in 1636, starting in Quebec and working among the Hurons. This was a rough assignment - not only were the living conditions hard, but the locals blamed the "Blackrobes" for any disease, ill luck, or other problems that occurred where they were. Captured in 1642 by the Mohawks, enslaved, tortured and mutilated for thirteen months, he taught the Faith to any who would listen, and finally escaped. He recuperated in France, but returned to the New World in 1644 to continue his work with the natives. Martyred with fellow Jesuit priest Saint John de Brebeuf and several lay missionaries while on a peace mission to the Iroquois. One of the North American Martyrs.
