Known as “El Pelé,” Blessed Ceferino gave his life to defend a priest during the Spanish Civil War. He was arrested for standing in defense of the priest and for carrying a rosary in his pocket. He was offered freedom if he stopped praying the rosary. He refused.

He was an active member of the Society of St. Vincent de Paul.

Here is a brief video about him, from Rome Reports:
