About the author: Blessed Juan de Palafox y Mendoza (1600-1659), was a Spanish politician, administrator, and Catholic clergyman in 17th century Spain and colonial Mexico. Palafox was the Bishop of Puebla (1640-1655), and the interim Archbishop of Mexico (1640-1642). He also held political office, from June 10, 1642 to November 23, 1642 as the Viceroy of New Spain. He lost a high-profile struggle with the Jesuits in New Spain, resulting in a recall back to Spain, to the minor Diocese of Osma in Old Castile. Although a case was opened for his beatification shortly after he died in 1659, he was not designated "blessed" until 2011 (from Wikipedia). [Attributes: Hard Cover]
