 A Modern Martyr

The Life of St. Théophane Vénard
186 pp. paperback

“I like Théophane Vénard even more than Saint Aloysius Gonzaga, because the life of Saint Aloysius Gonzaga was extraordinary and Théophane Vénard’s was quite ordinary...my soul is like his. He is the one who has best lived my way of spiritual childhood.” –St. Therese of the Child Jesus

Théophane Vénard's example, particularly his way of accepting his martyrdom, was a valuable aid to Saint Therese of the Child Jesus, especially his words before martyrdom: “I do not rely on my own strength, but on the strength of Him who defeated the power of hell and of the world through the Cross.” Théophane Vénard was a tender and dutiful son, a loving brother, and a devoted friend. Yet all this strong human love did not prevent his sacrificing everything to God, leaving the home he loved so fondly, the sister he idolized, and his strong family ties. He left everything which made life dear when the voice of the Master called him to go forth from his people and his country into a strange and distant land to preach His word and do His work and save the souls for whom He had died upon the Cross. This is the striking characteristic of the life before us: human love, surpassing all ordinary home affections, willingly and joyfully offered up on the altar of Our Lord for the salvation of the heathen who knew Him not.
