8th/ Eighth Day / dedicated to Saint Jean de Lalande
Martyred October 19th, 1646.
Jean de Lalande was a young layman who offered his services to the Jesuits of New France. He accompanied Isaac Jogues to the Mohawk Mission in 1646, knowing what he might have to suffer, gladly offering himself as a companion to Jogues and looking to God to protect him and to be his reward if the sacrifice of his life was demanded.
With Isaac Jogues, he was tortured and threatened with death. He saw the martyrdom of Jogues on October 18th. He himself was martyred on the following day at Auriesville, N.Y.
Prayer to Saint Jean de Lalande
Saint John de la Lande, who consecrated your life to God in the service of His missionaries, who served those holy men in lowly employments, and who in the end received the crown which is rewarded of humble and devoted soul, intercede for me with the Divine Maste, so that if my petition be agreeable to His holy will I may obtain what I ask. Amen.
