Ceferino Jiménez Malla "El Pelé"
27-03-2000

Cefferino Jimenez Malla 'El Pele' From the Spanish Cale family, Cefferino never went to school or learned to read or write. Although he made his living as a horse dealer, he was devoted to teaching the Gospel of the Catholic Church to the Romani community. He was persecuted for his faith which led to his death in 1936. The Church canonized him as a martyr, and then as a saint in May 1997.
