Memorial of Bl. Miguel Pro

Bl Miguel Augustin Pro

“Viva Christo Rey!”

“Neither suffering nor serious illness, neither the exhausting ministerial activity, frequently carried out in difficult and dangerous circumstances, could stifle the radiating and contagious joy which he brought to his life for Christ and which nothing could take away. Indeed, the deepest root of self-sacrificing surrender for the lowly was his passionate love for Jesus Christ and his ardent desire to be conformed to him, even unto death.” ~Pope John Paul II, at the beatification of Blessed Miguel Pro on September 25, 1988.
