"Viva Cristo Rey!"

Those were the last words of Blessed Miguel Agustin Pro - Padre Pro. Today is his feast day.

He had a great love for the Mass, devotion to Our Lady of Guadalupe, and apostolic zeal for ordinary working men. Despite the fierce persecution of the Mexican Government as well as his own debilitating illnesses, Fr. Pro continued his ministry to the faithful. He was captured, imprisoned and martyred for his Catholic Faith in 1927 under [false] charges of sedition. source


How can I explain to you the sweet grace of the Holy Spirit,
which invades my poor miner's soul with such heavenly joys?

May God have mercy on you! May God bless you! Lord, Thou
knowest that I am innocent! With all my heart I forgive my enemies!

God our Father,
you gave your servant Miguel Agustin
the grace to seek ardently your greater glory
and the salvation of your people.
Grant that through his intercession
and following his example
we may serve you and glorify you
by performing our daily duties with fidelity and joy
and effectively helping our neighbor.
We ask this through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son,
who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit,
One God, for ever and ever.
