Feast Day of Saints John de Brebeuf and Isaac JoguesPriests, Companions, and Martyrs
Read this quote of st. Isaac Jogues.
”My confidence is placed in God who does not need our help for accomplishing his designs. Our single endeavor should be to give ourselves to the work and to be faithful to him, and not to spoil his work by our shortcomings.”
Doesn’t this quote dovetail perfectly with the thoughts of the gospel reading from the feast of St. Luke, which we celebrated yesterday? We said in order to work for God, faith is primarily necessary. St. Isaac Jogues is urging us to give ourselves and be faithful.
St. Isaac Jogues, pray for us.
