Fr. Christopher Etheridge, IVE
Originally preached for the Feast of the North American Martyrs
In a letter to Fr. Jerome Lalemant three years before his martyrdom, St. Isaac Jogues asks Lalemant to pray to God that He “may give me a generous constancy to persevere in his love and in his service. This is what I should like to have more than anything else.”
It’s important to see why Jogues longed for a generous constancy.
