The Gaucho Priest: Free Coloring Page of Saint Jose Gabriel del Rosario Brochero

As my family tree is rooted in Argentina, I was elated to hear of Argentina's first saint to be canonized, Blessed Jose Gabriel del Rosario Brochero.

This remarkably humble priest was known for traveling extensively on his mule throughout Argentina to serve the poor and ill of his enormous parish. Always, he carried with him an image of the Virgin Mary, his Mass kit, and a prayer book.

Today, Pope Francis will officially canonize this "gaucho priest" ("gaucho" is Argentina's variation of the cowboy).

And so, of course, we must have a free coloring page for San Jose Gabriel del Rosario Brochero!

Here you go. Download it from this link.
