Beato Sebastian de Aparicio

The Church of Saint Francis Av 14 Oriente 805, Del Alto, 72290 Heróica Puebla de Zaragoza, Puebla., Mexico About Blessed Sebastian of Aparicio: He was born in Spain into a peasant family in 1502. At the age of 31, Sebastian left Spain for Mexico. He settled in the town of Puebla de los Angeles where he took employment as a field hand. However, he soon noticed a business opportunity: Puebla was an important crossroads, and he noted that the goods transported were carried on the backs of pack animals or on the backs of the native people. At first, Sebastian made and sold wheeled carts for the transport of goods. He then expanded into the improvement and building of roads and bridges to improve transport for goods and people. He was responsible for the building of a 460 mile road from Mexico City to Zacatecas, which took 10 years to build and was of enormous benefit to the local economy. By the age of 50, Sebastian was a wealthy man. He lived very simply and gave his earnings to others, he bought food for the poor, made loans that he never reclaimed to poor farmers too proud to accept charity, he paid the dowries for poor brides and gave free training to Indians in skills that would assist them in earning a living. In addition, people brought him their problems and he had a reputation for his wisdom. Sebastian became known as “The ‘Angel of Mexico“. He retired at the age of 50 to a hacienda to raise cattle
