Each Tiny Saints has a short biographical sketch on the back of its packaging.



Biographical information on the back of the package:





Ordained in 1925, Miguel Pro was a Jesuit priest in Mexico where public worship was banned. But Pro was kind and clever. He served the poor unceasingly and performed the sacraments in secret. When President Calles’ car was bombed, Pro was wrongfully convicted and sentenced to the firing squad. Hoping to portray Pro as a coward, Calles sent a photograper to the execution. Instead of a cowardly priest, the photo portayed the truth: a brave Miguel Pro, arms stretched, declaring, “Viva Cristo Rey!” (“Long live Christ the King!”)



Patron saint of:

courage
