We can easily forgive a child who is afraid of the dark; the real tragedy of life is when men are afraid of the light.

Plato (428-347BC)

Brebeuf Among the Huron
Saint Jean de Brebeuf (1593-1649) was a French Jesuit missionary to New France, who worked primarily among the Huron Indians in Ontario, Canada. He became a martyr and was canonized in 1930.

In 1643, Brebeuf wrote the "Huron Carol" which is still sung today. In the English version, Jesus is born in a "lodge of broken bark", and wrapped in a "robe of rabbit skin". He is surrounded by hunters instead of shepherds, and the Magi are portrayed as "chiefs from afar" that bring him "fox and beaver pelts" instead of the more familiar gold, frankincense, and myrrh. The hymn also uses a traditional Algonquian name, Gitchi Manitou, for God.

Religion's in the heart, not in the knees

Douglas Jerrold (1803-1857) English dramatist and writer. Better known from his reputation as a brilliant wit in conversation than from his writings. He never tired of declaiming against the horrors of war, the luxury of bishops, or the iniquity of capital punishment.
