Saint Junípero Serra was baptized the day he was born because it was believed he would not live long.
He would live to be 70 years old and accomplish great things, travelling thousands of miles, often in great physical pain, to deliver a transformative message.
Against great odds, he never gave up! He spoke out against injustice, showed great mercy, was a pioneer, and a man of true grit. Young and old alike will find this story about his life a truly inspiring one.
