Labbe, Martin a French prelate and missionary, was born at Le Luc, near Caen. He entered the Society of Jesus, and requested to be sent to the foreign missions. He went to Cochin China in 1678, and returned in 1697. Innocent XII made him bishop of Tilopolis. After a short sojourn in Europe the abbot returned to Cochin China, where he lived fifteen years, in the midst of fatigues and perils. He died in 1723, leaving a letter to pope Clement XI, on the worship of the Chinese; also a memoir on the persecutions. See Hoefer, Nouv. Biog. Generale, s.v.
