Viva Cristo Rey!

Blessed Miguel Pro

On the day of his execution, Fr. Pro forgave his executioners, prayed, bravely refused the blindfold and died proclaiming, "Viva Cristo Rey", "Long live Christ the King!"

Its amazing how few people realize that the government of Mexico tried so hard for so long to crush the Catholic Church.

Father Simon at St. Lambert's in Skokie posts his homilies online, and the most recent two have mentioned St. Miguel Pro.
Very, very good homilies!

About Me

My photo
Catholic and politically conservative, I graduated with a BA in History (concentration in American) and Political Science. I'm between two parishes; one in Wisconsin that is fairly traditional, and one in Illinois that is fairly liberal. I teach CCD. I work in the food service industry, which basically means I'm working in fast food until I find a better job. I'd like to work for the church somehow. Right now I'm working on getting my teaching certification, although I'm unsure thats the correct path for me. This blog is as random as I am. I hope you enjoy.
