St. Isaac Jogues, John de Brébeuf and Companions Isaac Jogues (1607-1646):
Isaac Jogues and his companions were the first martyrs of the North American
continent officially recognized by the Church. As a young Jesuit, Isaac
Jogues, a man of learning and culture, 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 John 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. His letters and journals tell how he and his companions were led
from village to village, how they were beaten, tortured and forced to watch
as their Huron converts were mangled and killed.   For more, follow the link

But God said to him, ?You fool, this night your life will be demanded of
you; and the things you have prepared, to whom will they belong?? Thus will
it be for the one who stores up treasure for himself but is not rich in what
matters to God.? ~Luke 12:13-21

It's tempting for us to accumulate many "things."  Houses, cars, boats,
pension funds, etc. seem to be our security.  If we have enough, we won't
have to worry.  Then we come to see that none of these things come with us
when we die.  Funeral coaches don't have luggage racks.  So we need to
treasure the things that will last forever. 

.=: P R A Y E R    F O R    T H E    D A Y :=.

I pray that I may not seek security in material things.  I pray that I may
work for the things that last forever.

We pray for unity in our country and that we may build a Culture of Life. We
pray for the safety of our troops, their safe return and their families at
home.  We pray for a deep and profound respect for life, and for the courage
and willingness to stand up for life. We pray for one another, for those who
have asked our prayers and for those who need our prayers the most. Have a
good day!

May God Bless you and those you love, and keep you safe!

Father Pat
