Blessed Juan of Tlaxcala



Servant of Blessed Antonio. Convert to Christianity. One of the Three Child Martyrs of Tlaxcala.






With great joy I have also proclaimed as Blessed the three child martyrs of Tlaxcala: Juan, Juan and Juan. At a tender age they were drawn to the words and witness of the missionaries and they became helpers, as catechists for other indigenous people. They are sublime and instructive examples of how evangelization is a task of all God’s People, excluding no one, not even children. With the Church in Tlaxcala and in Mexico, I am pleased to be able to offer all of Latin America and the universal Church this example of child-like piety, of apostolic and missionary generosity, crowned by the grace of martyrdom. – from the beatification homily of Pope John Paul II
