A spiritual director of St. Issac Jogues writes:
"It would have been well if I had learnt from Father Jogues the manner of praying and making thanksgiving (after Mass) as from a soul, if I can use the phrase, glued to the Blessed Sacrament. It was before this hidden God that he performed all his spiritual exercises, his prayers, his breviary, and he did not mind the bitterness of the cold nor the annoyance of the insects."
When St. Isaac Jogues became the first white man to see the modern day Lake George in the Adirondack Mountains on Corpus Christi, he called the lake "Lake of the Blessed Sacrament."
Of St. Rene Goupil, St. Isaac Jogues writes: "We begged God to accept our lives and our blood and unite them to His life and His blood for the salvation of these tribes," and "It was the Feast of St. Michael, September the 29th, 1642, that this angel in innocence and martyr of Jesus Christ, Rene Goupil, gave his life for Christ who has offered His life on the cross for him."
