Blessed Luis Padilla Gómez

Memorial

Profile

After studying at the concilar seminary of Guadalajara, Mexico from 1917 to 1921, Luis suffered doubts about his vocation and put off further studies. He worked as a teacher, but also conducted free classes for poor boys. One of the founders of the Catholic Youth Association of Mexico, Luis spent more and more time in prayer, meditation and Eucharistic adoration. In 1926, about the time Luis was considering a return to the seminary, antiChristian persecutions began as part of the Mexican Revolution, which led to his arrest and execution. Martyr.
