About this blogger:
Father Jean de Brébeuf was among the first missionaries to enter Huronia and among the last to leave. For years he was alone there. He underwent unspeakable suffering during his martyrdom, yet he uttered no cry. He only said, over and over, the following phrase: "Jesus, have mercy on us."

Far from dreading an encounter with the Iroquois, Fr. Garnier often told us he would be quite content to fall into the hands of the Iroquois and remain their prisoner if—while they were torturing him—he at least had a chance of instructing them as long as his torments lasted. If they allowed him to live, it would afford him a golden opportunity to work for their conversion, which was now impossible, since the gateway to their country was closed as long as they were our enemies.
— Father Ragueneau (Jesuit Relations)
