0 Lord, if only You were known! If only this land of Indians were converted to You and sin abolished forever! If only You were loved! Yes, dear Lord, if all the tortures that captives undergo in this land, if all the stark intensity of their sufferings should be my lot, I offer myself for it with all my heart.     (From the diary of Saint Jean de Brebeuf (+1649) Jesuit priest, missionary and Canadian martyr)
