About The Book
One misty, chilly November morning in 1927, a slender, young priest was led before a firing squad in Mexico City. Five shots cracked through the air and he fell lifeless on the ground. The man was Miguel Agustin Pro, S.J. Father Pro had committed no crime. As a member of the Society of Jesus, he had worked hard and patiently to bring bread to the poor and the Eucharist to the faithful. Like all priests, he was hated and hunted by the secret police of the capital and by the army throughout the Republic of Mexico. For this reason, after he was finally captured, he was killed without a trial. His love for the poor, the workers, the young, the sick, the tempted and teh spiritually weak attract many hearts to him. His good sense, wit, zeal and humor make him a model for the youth of today who, like him, have high ideals and will not be content until they have tried to attain them with sincerity, generosity and joy. Brother Gerald Muller, CSC is a native of North Dakota and a graduate (with honors) of Notre Dame University. He has been a Holy Cross Brother for 50 years, teaching and directing bands in Catholic high schools for 27 years and heading the Music Department of St. Edward;s University, Austin, Texas for 18 years. He is a teacher, conductor, pianist, opera singer and voice coach. He has written 100 biographies for children and a full biography for adults of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. In doing research for With Life and Laughter, he interviewed Father Pro’s last surviving sister, Ana Maria. She read the completed manuscript and stated it was the most factual account of her brother’s life written to date.
