Jose Burgos


Let me introduce you to one of the the great priest martyrs. Jose Burgos.

Jose Burgos
Born: February 9, 1837
Died: February 17, 1872

One of the priest-reformist GOMBURZA martyrs. Born in Vigan, Ilocos Sur, his mother was his first teacher and taught him to read and write. After finishing his early education, he went to Manila in 1849. He enrolled at the San Juan de Letran College and later, studied priesthood at the University of Santo Tomas. Burgos’ liberal and nationalist views pointed towards reform and establishment of more native clergy and Filipino priesthood. He gained a reputation as a defender of the native clergy and subsequently, with the Cavite mutiny on 1872, the Spanish authorities and friars falsely charged Father Burgos with being involved in the mutiny. After a mock trial and fake witnesses, Burgos along with Fathers Gomes and Zamora, was publicly executed by garrotte.
