Titles By Christian Clifford
On September 23, 1834, Pablo and Agapito enrolled at the Urban College. There they learned how to be missionary priests, hoping to one day return home to California to shepherd their Luiseño brothers and sisters in Christ. Following in the footsteps of Saint Junípero Serra, whose motto was “Move forward and never turn back” (¡Siempre adelante y nunca para atrás!), the young Pablo Tac never gave up.
Meet Pablo Tac is an inspirational story of faith, courage in the face of adversity, and the universality of the Catholic Church.
Come and meet Pablo Tac.
Christian Clifford’s passion for the topic and presentation will help the fair-minded see the first saint to be canonized on American soil in a clear and concise way and as one worthy of inviting on one’s own faith journey.
Going beyond the standard biography and drawing from many disciplines, the author paints a vivid picture of Serra during his time and through the years.
This book is written with Catholic high school students, parents, and religious educators in mind. However, anyone who is interested in the man Pope Francis called the "Evangelizer of the West" will deepen their understanding of this amazing Catholic Hispanic.
