Bl. Miguel Pro Comments

Born on January 13, 1891 in Guadalupe, Mexico, Miguel Agustin Pro Juarez was the eldest son of Miguel Pro and Josefa Juarez. Miguelito, as his doting family called him, was, from an early age, intensely spiritual and equally intense in hi mischievousness, frequently exasperating his family with his humor and practical jokes.

    Miguel Pro was sooooo awesome! I have officialy picked him as my Confirmation saint. He has also encouraged me to maybe become a priest when I am old enough. I also have to write a report on him and why he is good for my Confirmation

    Fr. Pro is a great inspiration to me right now. We're are being persecuted in a very subtle way though there are laws in place. Justice seems to be on the side of the well to do. The poor have to fend for themselves. Like Fr. Pro, I ask for God's strength and wisdom to stand up for thruth. All honor and glory to our God and Savior, Christ Jesus.

    As a very small child, 6 or 7 years old, I recall hearing about the religious persecution going on in Mexico. Also, the exciting part Fr. Pro played in continuing God's work in the villiages ministering to Catholics dispite the dangers he faced daily. After reading this info on Fr. Pro, I have gained a better understanding of what was going on in that country and the hardships religious and christians faced at that time.

    I'm amazed that the Catholic church has not done more to promote the sainthood of this
    modern day (North American) martyr.

    Father Miguel Pro´s childhood reminded me of San Juan Bosco, who also was a bright, energetic boy who also loved to make jokes and daring stunts...I didn´t know there is a church in México City where his relics are, so whenever I have the chance to visit that city, for sure I´ll visit his church, too. I know that we may be very blessed by praying to him, asking him for braveness so we may be strong when defending and practicing our religion. Viva Cristo Rey and Father Miguel Pro! thanks for your valuable info, God bless you all... ...

    Christian priests at first called Mexican to the independence of Mexico from Spain. But, thereafter, Soldiers' antagonisms were continued in that country. Migel Pro was a victim under that situation. Beautified Migel Pro, requiescat in pace. Amen.

    Congratulations on such a detailed account on the life of St. Miguel Pro, whose life and martyrdom has been the seed for the growth of the Catholic Church in Mexico. St. Miguel Pro pray for our youth who are tantalized by terrible distractions, drug abuse, cigarettes, time wasting, sex etc. Through your prayers, bring young people to the fount of love, Christ's love. Intercede for us too, parents, who have tried and failed, to raise faith-filled children. We are not giving up because we believe there is hope in the Good Shepherd who'll continue looking for them and bring them to the fold. Help us dear Saint. Amen.

    St Miguel Pro, you are an inspiration to me. You have responded to Christ the King as a true and daring soldier, a true son of St Ignatius. Please pray for us that we bear witness to this wonderful King today. The short summary of your life given here is really done well.

    Blessed Miguel Pro, thank you beloved saint, who appeals to me because of your ingenuity and mischievious style in serving God. You sound human and funny, that's what brings a smile to my face. God chooses His lovely children to serve Him through their unique gifts. Thank you Blessed Miguel for your exemplary life. Pray for us today. Amen
