About this blogger:
In the lasting inner turmoil of his years in the mission country, in the loathing and revulsion of spirit, in the mental torment of life with the Indians, St. Noël Chabanel underwent a supremely protracted and excruciating martyrdom. Every day was an agony for his sensibilities. He was the youngest and the last of the eight Jesuit martyrs of North America to die (on 8 December 1649).
