Fr. Miguel Anselmo Azcona Bernad, S.J. +

Fr. Bernad, whom I met on two occasions when he spoke about Philippine National Hero Jose Rizal, passed away early this afternoon. He lived a long and fruitful life. He was 91.

PDI contributor Nono Montalvan was quoted as saying that Fr. Bernad was:

“the greatest Filipino from Mindanao” whose “brilliance and love for the island had celebrated the triumph of the human spirit.”
