“[As a Jesuit Novice, 1625] the thoughts of [St.] Isaac Jogues visioned a future in which he might spend himself utterly in the service of God. He conceived the ambition of faring out into the far lands of the pagans and infidels as missionary. His imagination carried him off to the apostolate of India, where St. Francis Xavier had converted thousands; to China and Japan, where the Jesuits were combating the bonzes; to the Americas, where were whole continents yet unknown and millions of souls to save.” (Francis Talbot, Saint Among Savages)
Pope Pius IV (1565): “Also all other things taught, defined, and declared by the sacred canons and ecumenical Councils, and especially the sacred and holy Synod of Trent, I without hesitation accept and profess.” (Profession of Faith at The Council of Trent)
