Blessed Miguel Pro Heroic Mexican Martyr

"Blessed are those who have been persecuted for the sake of righteousness, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven." Matthew 5:10

"Whoever loses his life for my sake shall find it." Matthew 16:25

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

VIVA CRISTO REY!

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The life of Father Miguel Agustin Pro, a Catholic priest, had been as heroic as had been his martyrdom because of his love and faith in Jesus Christ. In losing his life for the sake of Christ, he exchanged his earthly life in hopes of attaining eternal life with God.

I. Blessed Miguel Pro's Life And Work

Born in Mexico, January 13, 1891, Miguel Pro grew up in a large family with six brothers and sisters. Inspired by two of his sisters who entered the religious life, Miguel at the age of twenty, prayed to God in order to learn what God's will was for his own life. Because of his great love for God, and his desire to follow His will, Miguel entered the Jesuit order at the Hacienda El Llano so that he may devote his life to the service of God.

Under the terror of the Mexican regime of the time of Calles' and Obergon's rule, came years of political and religious persecution. During this period, the Pro family suffered great great financial and personal hardship. Meanwhile Miguel and the other novices of the Jesuit order were also under severe threat of persecution, as Catholic priests and religious were among the targets of the Mexican reign of terror. After a raid of the religious' house, their superiors ordered Miguel and the other novices to escape from Mexico. Miguel's travels took him to diverse countries such as the U.S., Grenada, and eventually Belgium where he was ordained a priest on August 21, 1925. Even though his family could not be physically present at his ordination ceremony, Father Pro was spiritually present with them; blessing their individual photographs one by one.

Even though he sought to make his internal and physical turmoil hidden from those around him, Father Pro suffered great emotional pain over the constant worry he felt over his family and the physical pain which was caused by stomach troubles. Those around him even noted that at the times he felt the most pain; physical or emotional, that he would seem the most cheerful. Father Pro's physical health weakened despite several operations. In hopes of helping Father Pro to regain his health, his superiors granted his wish to return home to mexico to be nearer to his family. Little did his superiors realise the extent of the trouble that the Church in Mexico faced.

In 1926, Father Pro returned to Mexico during the height of political terror; at a time in which the Catholic Church faced great opposition as a result of constitutional amendments and legislation which severely restricted public worship. Any Catholic priest who would dare to continue to serve the sacraments such as communion, baptism, confession, confirmation and marriage risked persecution, torture, arrest and even execution!

And so began Father Pro's adventure for God, evading police in any way possible in order that he may minister to the physical and spiritual needs of all people which included the poor, the rich, workers, laborers, business and even Socialists and Communists (who were often openly hostile to Catholic Priests and the Church).Traveling via bike, and acquiring disguises such as that of a mechanic, a servant and even that of a cultured man of the world; he was able to carry out his duties for his people such as administering the sacraments and attending to the needs of people. In the spirit of Paul, the apostle, he literally became all things to all people for the sake of Christ. He won souls for Christ through prayer, humor and also through physical and spiritual aid.

While the solders and the police had their guns and rifles, Father Pro had the greatest of all weapons as he had once stated in reference to the crucifix: "Here is my weapon. With it along, I have no fear of anyone." [Ball, 32]

II. Father Pro's Martyrdom

"I am ready to give my life for souls, but I want nothing for myself. All that I want is to lead them to God. If I kept anything for myself, I should be a thief, infamous; I should no longer be a priest."*

In November 1927, Father Pro, along with his brother Humberto, became the scapegoat for an assassination attempt on the corrupt future president. The government authorities linked the Pro brothers to the crime through an old used car that had belonged to one of the brothers. Even though the authorities were well aware of the fact that the brothers were innocent, they were both guilty for being Catholic Priests. Because Catholic Priests were considered to be enemies of the corrupt regime, the government had an ulterior motive for convicting Miguel and his brother because they were the perfect scapegoat. Without due process or trial, the brothers were condemned to die. They were innocent of any crime. They were only guilty of being Catholic priests.

On the morning of November 23, 1927, Father Pro was led from his cell to the location of his execution. It did not matter to the police and soldiers that beyond the wall, within earshot, a man was shouting that he had in his hands a stay of execution that would free the brothers. The shouts were ignored and Father Pro was lead to his death. As he was led to death, one of the police men responsible for his capture asked for his forgiveness which Father Pro freely gave. Just minutes before he was to be executed, Father Pro asked to be able to pray as a last request. During this short amount of time, he kneeled upon the hard, uncomfortable ground, near the bullet riddled wall where he would soon be executed. In submission to God's will, he accepted his fate, stood up, stretched his arms out wide in the shape of the cross in preparation for his death. After forgiving his executors, and as the squad raised its weapons, Father Pro shouted in a clear, yet loud voice :Viva Cristo Rey!." (Which means long live Christ the king in Spanish.) With humility and bravery, Father Pro met his martyrdom.

On September 25, 1988, Father Pro was beatified by Pope John Paul II.

III. Chaplet of Blessed Miguel Pro, SJ

(by the author, Ann Ball)

[on the crucifix or medal of Fr. Pro]Blessed Miguel, before your death, you told your friend to ask you for favors when you were in Heaven. I beg you to intercede for me and in union with Our lady and all the angels and saints, to ask Our Lord to grant my petition, provided that it be God's will. [mention request]

{on the white beads that symbolize his purity]We honor and adore the triune God. [Gloria]We ask the Holy Spirit for guidance. Come Holy Ghost. We pray as Jesus taught us to pray. [Our Father]We venerate with love the Virgin May.[Hail Mary] All you angels, bless you the Lord forever. Saint Joseph, Saint [name of your patron], and all the saints pray for us.

Blessed Miguel, high spirited youth, pray for us. Viva Cristo Rey.

Blesses Miguel, loving son and brother, pray for us. Viva Cristo Rey.

Blessed miguel, patient novice, pray for us. Viva Cristo Rey.

Blessed Miguel, exile from your homeland, pray for us. Viva Cristo Rey.

Blessed Miguel, prayerful religious, pray for us. Viva Cristo Rey.

Blessed Miguel, sick and suffering, pray for us. Viva Cristo Rey.

Blessed Miguel, defender of workers, pray for us. Viva Cristo Rey.

Blessed Miguel, courageous priest in hiding, pray for us. Viva Cristo Rey.

Blessed Miguel, prisoner in jail, pray for us. Viva Cristo Rey.

Blessed Miguel, forgiver of persecutors, pray for us. Viva Cristo Rey.

Blessed Miguel, holy martyr, pray for us. Viva Cristo Rey.

The imprimatur for this chaplet was given by Bishop Florenza

The photo above was taken only hours before Father Pro's Martyrdom.

IV. Pro Vision

Pro Vision is an organization that is dedicated to the promotion of the cause of Blessed Father Pro's canonization. Its address is at: St. Francis Religious Goods, 4906 Hwy 6 North Houston, TX 77084

To receive a free holy card of Blessed Miguel Pro, please send a self addressed stamped envelope to the address above.

The information of this page is based on the book by Ann Ball, Blessed Miguel Pro 20th- century Mexican Martyr.(c. 1996, Tan) , who inspired me to write this page. The photograph of Father Pro's martyrdom is used with the permission of Ann Ball.

The photos of Fr. Pro's martyrdom were taken by reporters. The intention was to show to the world the cowardice of the Catholic Priests who were condemned to be executed. On the contrary, these photographs testify to the bravery of Father Pro. As a result, the distribution and even the possession of the photos was forbidden by the regime..

No, I know that his cause is being supported by various groups, and that he has acheived the first step in the process by being called "blessed," but other than that I am unsure.

"As he was led to death, one of the police men responsible for his capture asked for his forgiveness which Father Pro freely gave."

Been involved in some tough situations, but I can only pray that I would show the courage, compassion and complete faith in God that Father Miguel Pro did at that moment.

Wonderful post, thank you and may God Bless.

Not mentioned in the article is that even after they had killed him, the executioner came up close and shot him in the head. I have never been able to understand that kind of evil. Unbelievable hatred. =(

It's difficult to believe a person capable of something that disgusting, demeaning, and unnecessary could have a conscience. And he did this after Father Pro had already forgiven him. I can't comprehend such hatred.

I may never comprehend such evil acts, but no matter how hard the executioner tried to kill Father Pro and everything about him -- he utterly failed. And in the mansion prepared for Father Pro by the Lord, he has been working non-stop for the Holy Faith and for his people here on earth fighting the good fight for Jesus the King and for Holy Mother Church.

It wasn't the same person who he forgave. It was the person who was charged with firing on him. I guess to make sure he was REALLY REALLY dead, he had to shoot father Pro in the head after he had already been riddled with bullets. No matter, Siobhan is right. Blessed Father Pro sits at the right hand of God.

I found the pictures of Father Pro's execution. They show what a hero he truly was.

El mártir muerto.

Although Calles had forbidden any public demonstration, the people acted in open defiance. Never had the city seen such an enormous turnout for a funeral. As the martyrs' caskets left the house, the spontaneous cry went up: "Viva Cristo Rey!" Thousands thronged the streets and balconies, throwing flowers, praying the rosary and singing. It was a triumph -a glorious witness to the heroism of the brave martyr for Christ the King.

Dear Catholic friends, you need to see the photographs of Blessed Miguel Pro's martyrdom/execution that JMJ333 posted above. I believe this is one of the few martyrdoms recorded by photography -- please correct me if I'm wrong on that bit. It is still an awesome thing to see Blessed Miguel unite himself to Christ at his last moment.

¡Viva Cristo Rey!

What faith!

I've always been so humbled by reading the lives of the saints who died as martyrs, and those pictures make the life of Father Miguel Pro so much more than a story. Imagine living in a country, or in times of martrydom for the faith? We are so blessed. For as crazy as these times seem, we worship and talk about God whenever and wherever we want, without fear of persecution.

I think the persecution against us hasn't yet begun. You're correct that we feel comfortable, but I think it would be wise to pay attention of how Catholicism, and Christianity in general, is treated in our culture. Most other places in the world, Catholics are still under severe persecution. I have the sneaking suspicion that our time is coming.

Wonderful post old friend. I think Siobhan really nailed it with the tie-in to the Crufixtion and the World Youth Day! A great martyed priest who, I'm sure, will be cannonized by His Holiness John Paul one of these days. But please know the he will make a special trip to Mexico to cannonize Juan Diego first.

"I have the sneaking suspicion that our time is coming."

The net is slowly tightening. Population control will be one of the horrors. The epa has something called a millenni project and it has in it a planned attack and a list of possible methods (including schism) of changing the Catholic Church position. Here's the link (very long, bookmark worthy) I found this on:

American Catholic’s Saint of the Day

God calls each one of us to be a saint.
November 23, 2006
Blessed Miguel Agustín Pro
(1891-1927)

¡Viva Cristo Rey! (Long live Christ the King) were the last words Father Pro uttered before he was executed for being a Catholic priest and serving his flock.

Born into a prosperous, devout family in Guadalupe de Zacatecas, he entered the Jesuits in 1911 but three years later fled to Granada, Spain, because of religious persecution in Mexico. He was ordained in Belgium in 1925.

He immediately returned to Mexico, where he served a Church forced to go “underground.” He celebrated the Eucharist clandestinely and ministered the other sacraments to small groups of Catholics.

He and his brother Roberto were arrested on trumped-up charges of attempting to assassinate Mexico’s president. Roberto was spared but Miguel was sentenced to face a firing squad on November 23, 1927. His funeral became a public demonstration of faith. He was beatified in 1988.

Comment:

In 1927 when Father Miguel Pro was executed, no one could have predicted that 52 years later the bishop of Rome would visit Mexico, be welcomed by its president and celebrate open-air Masses before thousands of people. Pope John Paul II made additional trips to Mexico in 1990, 1993 and 1999. Those who outlawed the Catholic Church in Mexico did not count on the deeply rooted faith of its people and the willingness of many of them, like Miguel Pro, to die as martyrs.

Quote:

During his homily at the beatification Mass, Pope John Paul II said that Father Pro “is a new glory for the beloved Mexican nation, as well as for the Society of Jesus. His life of sacrificing and intrepid apostolate was always inspired by a tireless evangelizing effort. 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 (see John 16:22). 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.”
