Saint Toribio Romo
Patron of Immigrants



Toribio Romo was born on the Santa Ana Ranch in Guadalupe, in the state of Jalisco, Mexico on April 15, 1900. He was baptized the next day by Father Miguel Romo. He received First Communion at the age of 7. He grew up in a small town of reverent and humble people, where the custom was to adore Our Lord Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament every night. Through this influence, he developed a great devotion to Our Lord Jesus in the Eucharist and Our Lady of Guadalupe. As a child he was an altar boy and was known for his devotion and the conscientious manner with which he carried out his duties.


At 13 years old, he began his studies at the Minor Seminary of San Juan de los Lagos. He received his minor vows in February, 1919 at that Seminary. That same year, he entered the Major Seminary of Guadalajara to continue and conclude his studies He consecrated his life to the Sacred Heart of Jesus, Our Lady of Guadalupe and Saint Joseph.


He was ordained deacon on Sept. 3, 1922 and on the 23rd of December of the same year he was ordained priest by his local Bishop. The joy that Father Toribio had so longed for had reached its peak that day.


He celebrated his first Mass at his Parish Church at the age of 22. in the same church where as a seminarian he had dedicated himself to La Morenita, the dark-skinned Virgin of Tepeyac. He dedicated his works to the establishment of Catechism. He founded centers, commissioned catechists and organized a collective First Communion which was memorable. Read More click here

Martyrs, They Died for Christ



As far back as the 16th Century, the Mexican faithful have given the Church, Martyrs!
 
When our Lady of Guadalupe came, She won the hearts of Spaniards and Indians, forming family.
Three young boys chose eternal life over the world, back in the 16th Century, and gave their lives for the Church.
This heritage has given the Mexican people the fire and passion to remain faithful to La Morenita and the Church.

In the 20th Century, our neighbors to the South risked Martyrdom rather than give into the demands of the Masonic government
to become a State church. Priests were outlawed, and if found tortured and martyred; Bishops were exiled as non-persons
because they refused to reject the Papacy and give allegiance to the State. Although these Priest-Martyrs knew to
remain in Mexico meant a sure Martyrdom, they chose death, so that while they were able they could bring the
Sacraments to the faithful. These are true stories taken where the Martyrs lived and died for the Faith.

V40 - Blessed Miguel Pro

Martyr of the 20th Century Martyr of the 20th Century Fr. Pro was a Role Model for the Mexican Martyrs who followed him. Although he knew it meant sure Martyrdom, he obeyed his superiors and returned to minister to his flock in the huge Diocese of Mexico City. He played cat and mouse with the authorities, using elaborate disguises until he was caught.

He stood before the firing squad, and forgave those who were about to shoot him.

With a cross in one hand, a rosary in the other, he cried out "Viva Cristo Rey!" We go to the place of his execution, which sports a tiny sign about a great sacrifice.
