St. Junipero Serra

I found this old book last spring on Amazon through a third party.  St Junipero Serra has been canonized less then 2 years!  His feast day is coming up, July 1.



This godly man did SO much for the poor Indians in California, fighting for them so that they'd have a decent standard of living.  He wrote the first "Bill of Rights" for the Indians.  He is also, "in a large part, responsible for the foundation and spread of the Church on the west coast."

You can read (or listen to) his story here and here.


St. Junipero Serra, pray for us!

    1. The southwest and west missions are truly a site to behold! We have seen all but one of the Spanish missions in TX. They are all so unique.
