Junípero Serra was baptized the day he was born because it was
believed he would not live long. He would live to be 70 years old and
accomplish great things. He travelled thousands of miles, often in
great physical pain, to deliver a transformative message. Against
great odds, he never gave up! He spoke out against injustice, showed
great mercy, was a pioneer, and a man of true grit. Young and old
alike will find this story about his life a truly inspiring one.
