“The blood of the martyrs is the seed of the Church.” Tertullian (Apologeticus). The Cause for Canonization of the Martyrs of La Florida has officially been reopened! Originally delayed in the early 1940’s due to World War II, the Cause has had a major revitalization in the past 20 years. The four Vice Postulators for the Cause are Father Alberto Rodriguez Lopez, O.P for the Dominican martyrs; Fr. Wayne Paysse for the Native martyrs; Sixto J. Garcia, PhD for Fr. Martinez SJ; and Fr. Bill Wilson for the Franciscan martyrs. More information on the Cause can be found at www.MartyrsoflaFloridaMissions.org. Please pray for these martyrs and ask for their friendship and intercession!
