A Migrant's Masterpiece

Click to hear “El Corrido de Arzobispo Patricio Flores” (in Spanish) by your trulies Los Padrinos.

I was honored to attend the screening of the documentary about our beloved Archbishop Patrick Flores, directed by Hector Galán. It was a powerful story.  It has a very uplifting message, amid all the challenges the Archbishop faced growing up (racism, discrimination, hardships) he never forgot where he came from. His motto is “I will work, not for myself, but for others” – and he lived it. He is an inspiration to all people of faith, especially Mexican-Americans. Oh and by the way, he is one of the founders of the Mexican American Cultural Center (MACC) here in San Antonio! What a legacy!

It is supposed to appear nationally next year so keep an ear out!
