Ad Majorem Dei Gloriam



This is for the 8 French Jesuits who found their martyrdom in 17th century North America. They braved the wild frontier and hostility to spread the Faith. For all the guff the Jesuits get nowadays (much of it deserved, unfair for the solid Jesuits) they were heroic Christian witnesses as demonstrated by Saints Issac Jogues, Jean de Brébeuf, Gabriel Lalemant, Noël Chabanel, Antoine Daniel, Charles Garnier, Jean de Lalande and René Goupil.

Trivia: Soon to be Saint Kateri Takakwitha was born in the village St. Isaac Jogues was martyred.

Sancti martyres, ora pro nobis
