On this memorial of Saints John de Brébeuf, Isaac Jogues and their companion martyrs, we hear Jesus warning those who were plotting his own death, "woe to you!" Yet the North American martyrs and Jesus went to their deaths with some level of peace, trusting that God would use their deaths to further the kingdom. Can we find some peace in God's larger plan when troubles come our way?
