Rene's deafness prevented him from joining the Jesuit noviate in France, so he studied medicine and later worked as a medic for the missionaries in the Americas. He was later a devoted assistant to St. Isaac Jogues on his Huron missions. Huron enemies, the Iroquois, repeatedly beat and tortured Rene for his teachings and later killed him for teaching children the sign of the cross. His death by tomahawk in the head led to his patronage of people who work with or receive anesthesia.

Born: 1606 Anjou, Kingdom of France
