Life of St. Ezekiel Moreno

EZEQUIEL1

Ezekiel Moreno was born in the city of Alfaro, Spain, on 9 April 1848, of poor but committed Christian parents. His early years were seemingly ordinary and uneventful ones in which Ezekiel came to be remembered as an obedient son, a loving brother, a good companion to his friends, and a diligent student. Following the example of an older brother, he entered the Recollect Congregation of the Augustinian Order in Monteagudo in 1864. After the study of theology and the profession of solemn vows, he and seventeen other young friars set sail for the Philippine Islands, landing in Manila in February 1870. On 5 June 1871 he was ordained a priest, and embarked upon an enthusiastic ministry among the island people which lasted for over fifteen years. In 1885 his superiors recalled him to Spain to become rector of the college and novitiate of Monteagudo, where he remained for three years. Read more here…
