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."

“Iconographic tradition has theologically interpreted the manger and the swaddling cloths in terms of the theology of the Fathers. The child stiffly wrapped in bandages is seen as prefiguring the hour of his death: from the outset, he is the sacrificial victim, as we shall see more closely when we examine the reference to the first-born. The manger, then, was seen as a kind of altar.”
— Pope Benedict XVI (2012)
