St. Anthony Claret (1807-1870)
The "spiritual father of Cuba" was a missionary, religious founder, social
reformer, queen's chaplain, writer and publisher, archbishop and refugee. He
was a Spaniard whose work took him to the Canary Islands, Cuba, Madrid,
Paris and to the First Vatican Council. In his spare time as weaver and
designer in the textile mills of Barcelona, he learned Latin and printing:
the future priest and publisher was preparing. Ordained at 28, he was
prevented by ill health from entering religious life as a Carthusian or as a
Jesuit, but went on to become one of Spain's most popular preachers.

But if Christ is in you, although the body is dead because of sin, the
spirit is alive because of righteousness. If the Spirit of the one who
raised Jesus from the dead dwells in you, the one who raised Christ from the
dead will give life to your mortal bodies also, through his Spirit that
dwells in you. ~Romans 8:1-11

He said to him in reply, 'Sir, leave it for this year also, and I shall
cultivate the ground around it and fertilize it; 
it may bear fruit in the future. If not you can cut it down.' ~Luke 13:1-9
