"Father Isaac Jogues was truly a martyr before God, rendering witness to Heaven and earth that he valued the Faith and the propagation of the gospel more highly than his own life, and losing it in the dangers into which, with full consciousness, he cast himself for Jesus Christ…" — Fr. Jerome Lalemant (writing in 1647)

"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)

Sacred Music of Nicholas Wilton & Paintings of Fra Angelica (Lovely Video)
published 12 March 2014 by Corpus Christi Watershed

E HAVE RECEIVED notice of the following beautiful video by Nicholas Wilton (see below) and a personal message from the composer:

“My intention in writing sacred choral music is firstly for the adoration of God and the veneration and glorification of Our Blessed Lady. Secondly it is to help raise minds and hearts to God in the sacred Catholic liturgy. In these troubled times where very few Catholics have sacraments my hope is that my sacred choral music might help Catholics against the assaults of the devil. If my little sub-creations can help even one soul, I should be happy.”
