“If they kill me, I die for Christ and I die to save the country: At the beginning of 1936 threatening clouds were gathering over the area of Cuenca and the seminary of San Pablo. On May 1st of that year the community had received serious threats from leftist elements. The community had received a warning to leave the seminary as quickly as possible and seek refuge in a more secure place. In light of these threats and warnings the superior of the community, Father Julián Morales, told all the residents that they should leave at once.”
