Remembering Miguel Pro

A volunteer searching through the archives of the New Orleans Province of the Jesuits recently discovered a rare photo of Blessed Miguel Pro, SJ, along with an American Jesuit’s remembrances of time spent with the Jesuit martyr in a Belgian hospital.  John Druhan, SJ, wrote that Pro spoke American slang with a Mexican accent and liked to sing popular songs.  The photo (above) appeared on the cover of the province magazine, along with an article about Pro.

  1. Jim, thank you so much for sharing this article about Blessed Miguel Pro, SJ and John Druhan, SJ. It is so easy to forget that our freedom to worship has been won by the sacrifice of many even in recent times. What am I willing to sacrifice for Jesus? That is the question I must now answer.
