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).

"The Consilium is merely an assembly of people, many of them incompetent, and others well advanced on the road to novelty. The discussions are extremely hurried. Discussions are based on impressions and the voting is chaotic. […] Many of those who have influenced the reform […] have no love, and no veneration of that which has been handed down to us. They begin by despising everything that is actually there. This negative mentality is unjust and pernicious, and unfortunately, Paul VI tends a little to this side. They have all the best intentions, but with this mentality they have only been able to demolish and not to restore."
