Saint Cristóbal Magallanes Jara, 1869–1927
Saint Cristóbal Magallanes Jara grew up in Mexico. When he was a boy, he was a shepherd. Later, as a priest, he tried to be like Jesus, the Good Shepherd. He took care of the people in his village by building schools, starting a newspaper, and training men to become priests. He was arrested on his way to say Mass at a farm. Some people thought that he was trying to rebel against the government so he was arrested on his way. He wasn’t, but he was killed anyway. Before he died, Saint Cristóbal forgave the people who killed him.
