Blessed Miguel Agustin Pro, Priest and Martyr

Miguel Pro was born near Zacatecas, Mexico, on January 13, 1891. In 1911, he entered the Society of Jesus; his studies took him to the United States, Spain, and Belgium, where he was ordained in 1926.

On his return to Mexico, he carried out his priestly ministry in secret because of the religious persecution. Eventually, his zeal attracted the attention of the authorities; he was arrested on false charges and was condemned to death.

The sentence was carried out by shooting on November 23, 1927. Miguel was beatified on September 25, 1988, by Pope John Paul II.

PRAYER: Lord, You gave Blessed Miguel the grace to seek Your glory and the salvation of souls. Through his prayers, may we serve and glorify You by faithfully performing our daily duties and helping our neighbors. Amen.
