Gabriel Garcia Moreno

Andrew Cusack at Norumbega has a fine post about Gabriel Garcia Moreno, the 19th century Catholic statesman who was President of Ecuador, consecrated his country to the Sacred Heart of Jesus, and was martyred by the freemasons. On his person at the time of his death were found a relic of the Cross, a Scapular, and his copy of The Imitation of Christ.

I hope that he is canonised one day. Gabriel Garcia Moreno is a shining example of what a Catholic statesman should be. His rise to prominence was predicted by Our Lady of Good Success.
