More about this item

Saint Pedro Poveda
Priest - Educator - Martyr

This biographical drama tells the true story of St. Pedro Poveda (1874 - 1936), a tenacious and innovative priest who opened new paths in education and also pioneered the rights of women in early-twentieth-century Spain. A victim of intolerance, he was murdered at the outbreak of the Spanish Civil War and was canonized a saint by Pope John Paul II in 2003.

Proveda's success in educating and helping the poor illiterate children living in the Caves of Guadix received staunch opposition, causing him to move his work to Covadonga in the northern mountains. There he started a new Christian movement, led by young women, which became the Teresian Association that continues to work today. His work especially focused on the spiritual and academic formation of teachers. For its development, he was supported by young Pepita Segovia, one of the first women of her time to receive a university degree in education.

Proveda continued his work in spite of the social and political turmoil that intensified at the beginning of the thirties and escalated into a civil war. Caught in the middle of the conflict, Poveda, a man of peace, gave his life for the Catholic faith, leaving behind a great legacy of light and hope.
