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).

“I still haven’t made up my mind whether I shall publish it all. Some people are so humorless, so uncharitable, and so absurdly wrong-headed, that one would probably do far better to relax and enjoy life than worry oneself to death trying to instruct or entertain a public which will only despise one’s efforts, or at least feel no gratitude for them. Most readers know nothing about canon law. Many regard it with contempt and find everything heavy going that isn’t completely lowbrow. Some are so grimly serious that they disapprove of all humor. Others come to different conclusions every time they stand up or sit down. They seize upon your publications, as a wrestler seizes upon his opponent’s hair, and use them to drag you down, while they themselves remain quite invulnerable, because their barren pates are completely bald, so there’s nothing for you to get hold of.”
— St. Thomas More to Peter Gilles, 1516
