Saint Ezekiel was born on April 9, 1848 at Alfaro, La Rioja, Spain. He professed his solemn vows in Marcilla, Navarra on September 22, 1868.
On February 10, 1870, he arrived in Manila and lived in the convent and formation house of San Nicolas in Intramuros, popularly known as Recoletos, where he finished his theological formation. In Mid 1870 he sailed to Jaro, Iloilo, to receive minor orders from the Dominican bishop of the Visayan diocese.
Two miracles worked through the Saint’s intercession were officially approved by the Church.
Approved by the Sacred Congregation for the Causes of Saints on 7 March 1992, this second miracle paved the way for his canonization.
In the Philippines, we have news of a miraculous healing of Lilia Sirios of Escalante, Negros Occidental, who had cancer in the throat in 1979.
These cures constitute clear evidence of Saint Ezekiel’s special preference for terminally-ill people with unwavering faith and confidence in Almighty God.
