"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)

Suzanne Toolan • Missing Verse From “I Am The Bread Of Life” Hymn
published 12 March 2016 by Jeff Ostrowski

THIS WAS SENT to my email inbox—can anyone verify its authenticity?

679 Suzanne Toolan


I’m not sure whether this is a hoax—one must exercise caution on the internet. If you can help solve this mystery, please use the Facebook comment section.

The text itself seems to be based on the Gospel of John, which is called the “Eucharistic Gospel” because of its sixth chapter.


UPDATE at 11:30am 3/13/2016 :

Many of the people commenting on Facebook agree with me that this is probably a hoax.

Some have suggested that my posting this—in an effort to determine the truth—constitutes “defamation.” However, it’s difficult for me to understand how attempting to determine the truth about something could be defamation.

If this is a hoax—and it seems likely it is—I’m at a loss to know why somebody went through the process of creating such a hoax; what did they gain?

On the CCW facebook, Steven Ottományi posted the following on 15 March at 10:40am:

I have just spoken with Sr. Suzanne Toolan on the phone. She has confirmed that at no time was any text considered, other than the two selections from John (chapters 6 and 11).
In other words, according to this phone call, Toolan confirms our suspicions that this is a hoax.
