Blessed Fr. Miguel Pro on the Grace of Suffering

Blessed Fr. Miguel Pro

Throughout his ministry, Father Pro experienced great suffering and adversity. Yet, despite the systematic persecution of Catholics by the secular authorities, this humble priest was a source strength who exuded the love of Jesus Christ.
Here in the midst of the vortex I am amazed by the special aid of God, the very special graces He grants us in such perils, and how His Presence is now more intimately felt when discouragement comes to make our souls smaller.
— Blessed Father Miguel Pro

Prayer for Blessed Miguel Pro's Intercession

Our God and Father, who conferred upon your servant Blessed Father Miguel Pro the grace of ardently seeking your greater glory and the salvation of all souls, grant, through his holy intercession and example, that by faithfully and joyfully performing our daily duties and effectively assisting those around us, we may serve you with zeal and ever seek your glory. Through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son, who reigns with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, forever. Amen.
