Martyr of the 20th Century Martyr of the 20th Century Fr. Prowas a Role Model for the Mexican Martyrs who followed him. Although he knew it meant sure Martyrdom, he obeyed his superiors and returned to minister to his flock in the huge Diocese of Mexico City. He played cat and mouse with the authorities, using elaborate disguises until he was caught.
He stood before the firing squad, and forgave those who were about to shoot him.
With a cross in one hand, a rosary in the other, he cried out "Viva Cristo Rey!" We go to the place of his execution, which sports a tiny sign about a great sacrifice.
