By Fr. John Carroll, SJ
With permission we reprint the article of Fr. John Carroll, SJ on the death of Fr. Hector Mauri, which appeared in the Philippine Daily Inquirer.
Hector’s work went from disaster to disaster. What is surprising is that he never gave up.
THE SUGAR PLANTERS and millers of Negros probably wept no tears on August 6 when Fr. Hector Mauri SJ, breathed his last. Although 87 years old, bedridden and scarcely able to communicate these past four years, the battles which he waged for the rights of the sugar workers have left scars to this day.
