Blessed Adilio Daronch
Born in October 1908 to a family of modest means in an isolated town in the interior of Brazil, Adilio Daronch from early childhood loved to pray and serve at Mass. At 16, he was killed alongside Fr. Manuel Gomez Gonzalez, when revolutionaries met them on the road during a trip to visit with distant Christian communities. We invoke him for his strong friendship with Christ!
Blessed Adilio Daronch, pray for us!
