"Upon the road, René was always occupied with God. His words and the discourses he held were all expressive of submission to the commands of Divine Providence, and showed a willing acceptance of the death which God was sending him. He gave himself to God as a sacrifice, to be reduced to ashes by the fires of the Iroquois, which that good Father's hand would kindle. He sought the means to bless Him in all things and everywhere. Covered with wounds as he himself was, Goupil dressed the wounds of other persons, of the enemies who had received some blows in the fight as well as those of the prisoners. He opened the vein for a sick Iroquois. And he did it all with as much charity as if he had done it to persons who were his best friends."
— St. Isaac Jogues (writing in 1643)

published 14 January 2014 by Jeff Ostrowski

ONSIGNOR SCHMITT was a great writer. On the other hand, he made plenty of errors as an editor (and admitted this in his autobiography). For example, he often spells Disciplina as “Discplinia,” and Joseph Gogniat as “Joseph Cogniat.” In the index, the below is referenced as “Nova Organdi,” instead of Nova Organi. Watershed first placed the Nova Organi Harmonia (NOH) online in 2008.
