Blessed Sebastian of Aparicio lived a humble and chaste life in Mexico in the 16th century. There was no job he could not do and no person he would not help. After accumulating a significant amount of wealth as a road builder, Blessed Sebastian gave away his possessions and entered religious life as a Franciscan at the age of seventy. Upon his death in 1600, many miracles were credited to him, and he was beatified by Pope Pius VI in 1789.
Your children will learn many lessons, including hard work and humility, through this story of Blessed Sebastian and his oxen.
