November 23: Blessed Miguel Agustín Pro, Priest and Martyr (U.S.A.)1891–1927Optional Memorial; Liturgical Color: RedThe proto-martyr of the age of the imageThe emaciated holocaust survivor behind the barbed wire, gazing out, bewildered, as the Allied soldiers walk up to the camp. Click. The slack body of a black man hanging from a stout limb, a thick crowd of whites gathered around. Click. A soldier shooting a young Viet Cong prisoner in the head on the frenetic streets of Saigon in 1968. Click. The President zooming through Dallas in a convertible when… Click. In the age of the image, a camera is always clicking or a device recording the action. Modern reality is experienced through images, lenses, and screens more than words. Like a red-hot iron searing a brand into a hide, a powerful image sizzles as it presses itself into our brains.The photos of the execution of today's martyr blister the mind. There are no photos of Polycarp as the flames licked his skin, of Felicity and Perpetua stumbling as the heifer ran them down, or of Kolbe quietly offering his life for a stranger in grim Auschwitz. The indelible photos of Father Pro being shot will have to suffice for all the undepicted others. The high drama of Pro's last moments must substitute for every Christian stuffed in the trunk, worked to death in the Siberian gulag, or burned at the stake. No last words or gestures were recorded as the terror closed in on them. For so many who were “disappeared,” there were no witnesses, no documents, no legacy, no clicks.Miguel Pro was born into a middle-class family in North Central Mexico. His family was large, pious, and close in the best Latino tradition. Miguel received his First Holy Communion from Fr. Mateo Correa, who would be executed just a few months before Father Pro for not revealing the confessions of his fellow prisoners. A much loved sister of Miguel's became a nun, a Christian witness which inspired Miguel to enter a Jesuit seminary. Miguel's seminary studies in Mexico were interrupted by the spasms of anti-Catholic violence which convulsed Mexico throughout the early twentieth century. He had to flee the country and studied in California, Nicaragua, Spain, and, finally, Belgium, where he was ordained a priest in 1925. The other men ordained with him gave their customary first priestly blessing to their parents after the ordination Mass. Father Miguel's entire family was in Mexico, so he went back to his room, laid out all his family photos on a table, and blessed the pictures. Fr. Pro's first apostolic labors were in Belgium among working class miners. His health was a problem from his youth. He suffered painful bleeding ulcers, which required several marginally successful surgeries to repair. This constant physical discomfort likely hardened his will, deepened his life of prayer, and steeled his body for the heroism to come. Years of faithful attendance at the school of human suffering had braced him. Fr. Pro was a man in full.In 1926 Father Pro returned to Mexico and began a clandestine priestly ministry in an atmosphere of high tension. Mexico's lords of evil had a phobia of Catholicism and outlawed its every expression, from the wearing of priestly garb to the public celebration of the Sacraments. Pro was hunted like a bandit. In November 1927, an unsuccessful assassination attempt on the president-elect provided the pretext for punishing Pro, who was guiltless. He was discovered in his hideout. There was no trial, no evidence, no counsel, no defense, no judge, no jury, no verdict, and no sentence. There was just a squalid firing range down the street. It was November 23. A photographer was sent to capture, for propaganda purposes, Pro begging for mercy. Not a chance! Father Pro briefly knelt in prayer, declined a blindfold, kissed his crucifix, and then stood and spoke in a strong voice: “May God have mercy on you! May God bless you! Lord, you know I am innocent! With all my heart I forgive my enemies! Viva Cristo Rey!” He then elevated his arms like the crucified Savior, a rosary in one hand and a small crucifix in the other when...click, click, click, click. It was 10:38 a.m. Pro is frozen in time. He is forever young. He is not before or after. He is his last seconds. He is those photos. To die is to do something. Blessed Miguel Pro did it as well as anyone ever did. He was beatified in 1988 and his memorial placed one week before the feast of Christ the King.Blessed Miguel Pro, your gripping last moments sear the mind and pierce the heart. Grant us just an ounce of your ocean of daring, fortitude, and perseverance in living and sharing the faith. Help us to be more like you!

Doors open at 7 p.m. and the shows start at 8 p.m. Greg Krausert of Austin, Minn. is also planning on wearing a Halloween costume this Saturday night when he attends a cabaret performance at the Austin Country Club by local drag performer Roxie Manacoochi. Backed by a DJ, Manacoochi sings a range of styles from Cole Porter to Madonna to contemporary fare. She was named first runner up to Miss Gay Iowa USofA and is preparing to compete again this January. “It's unbelievable fun,” says Krausert of the show, recalling Manacoochi's September performance, which kept the audience laughing and singing far beyond the scheduled run time. Saturday's cabaret show starts at 7:30 p.m. Twin Cities filmmaker Peter Groynom is looking forward to attending the Twin Cities Film Fest, which continues with a full lineup of showings tonight, Friday and Saturday. The films play at the ShowPlace ICON Theatre in St Louis Park, and Groynom says this centralized location makes it easy to see multiple shows and also have a chance to connect with other filmmakers and enthusiasts. The year's festival has drawn about 70 films by local, national and international filmmakers. The films are also accessible to stream through the festival website. Groynom appreciates how the festival spotlights diverse programming. On his watch list: a series of dramatic shorts called “American Tales” Friday at 2:30; a block of comedic shorts called “The Joke's on Us” Saturday at 12:30 — both with filmmaker Q&As afterward; and a Saturday afternoon documentary, “Jimmy in Saigon,” which explores the life, romance and death of a queer veteran in Vietnam.

Apex Express is a weekly magazine-style radio show featuring the voices and stories of Asians and Pacific Islanders from all corners of our community. The show is produced by a collective of media makers, deejays, and activists. Intimate Sounds of the Four Continents Episode #1 Intimate Sounds of the Four Continents combines Lisa Lowe's theories and music from around the world to create intellectually stimulating sonic experience. DJ Miu created this radio show with a mission to spread the message: “Freedom is Yet to Come.” I encourage listeners to take the time to read, write, and resist. We require inoculations that repel the seductions of corporate servitude. Cauleen Smith told us. Starting with reading Lisa Lowe's writing. Reading is Fundamental. This is my very first episode of Intimate Sounds of the Four Continents, where I dug a lot of music from Southeast Asia, Vietnam mainly to pay homage to my roots, where my people are from as well as China where my ancestors migrated from into Vietnam. I also share some Vietnamese New wave music, popularized in the 1980's in Southern California, where my mom and many other Vietnamese refugees migrated to after the Fall of Saigon. So there's some funky music that Vietnamese diasporic people digs into European electronic, synths, disco, and recorded covers of that. Check out Elizabeth Ai's documentary New Wave that talks all about that era and my people. And I also threw in some love and heartbreak songs, because they are always timeless. My name is Paige Chung. I am a writer, skater, poet, and turntablist-in-training. My last project Nail Trap is juicier than your neighborhood gossip and my current project is hotter than your cousin's mixtape. Based in LA, but I roll everywhere and go by DJ Miu. I am currently enrolled at the Beat Junkies Institute of Sound. Special shout out to my dear friend, Thao Le for introducing me to so much of this music and creating the Southeast Asian Psych Funk playlist on Spotify. Lastly, special shoutout to my DJ crew 730 Faders. Catch us throwing the next best party in LA and coming near you. And my deep study crew Quinnette, Zahara, Discott and the Soul in the Horn family. Lisa Lowe's Book: In this uniquely interdisciplinary work, Lisa Lowe examines the relationships between Europe, Africa, Asia, and the Americas in the late eighteenth- and early nineteenth- centuries, exploring the links between colonialism, slavery, imperial trades and Western liberalism.

A special episode of the Law Enforcement Today Radio Show from the roof of the building overlooking the U.S. Capitol Building at 400 North Capitol Street in Washington D.C. This was at the Federation For American Immigration Reform's annual Feet 2 the Fire Radio Row event. We were one of 66 radio shows invited. Our guest Tony Pham was born in South Vietnam two years before the fall of Saigon. Like many other freedom-seeking Vietnamese, his family fled the communist regime in 1975. As a young child, Mr. Pham witnessed his parents sacrifice tremendously to rebuild their lives in a new and wonderful country. In 1985, the Phams were rewarded with their naturalized citizenship. Mr. Pham watched his parents work relentlessly as laborers to support a family and to put him through school at the College of William and Mary and then the University of Richmond School of Law. In 2020, Mr. Pham was appointed Principal Legal Advisor for ICE and later that year was named Acting Director of ICE later that year. In his capacity as Acting Director of ICE, Mr. Pham worked to ensure that the nation's immigration laws were enforced in so-called sanctuary jurisdictions that harbor criminal aliens.

If you've been struggling with inflation-fueled high prices, from groceries to gasoline, some help is on the way. Starting Friday, the state will start sending out about nine and a half billion dollars worth of tax rebates to Californians to help people with their bills. The one time payments will range from $400 to $1,050 dollars for joint tax filers and between $200 and $700 dollars for those who filed individually. Reporter: Saul Gonzalez, KQED In Sacramento, Black residents are three times as likely to say they can't afford their rent or mortgage compared with the area's overall population. A poll published this week by Valley Vision, a civic leadership organization in the Sacramento area, found nearly nine of every 10 Black residents are concerned about the cost of housing in the Sacramento region. That's higher than any other racial or ethnic group. Reporter: Chris Nichols, CapRadio In a preview of our sister show, the California Report's weekly Magazine, we hop on a bus many in the Vietnamese American community informally call the “Bánh Mì Bus” because of the importance of food to many of the passengers on the trip. Reporter Christine Nguyen takes us on a mouthwatering journey from San Jose to little Saigon in Orange County, a route that connects the two largest Vietnamese communities outside Vietnam. Host: Sasha Khokha, The California Report Magazine
2001 - League City, Texas. When Tot Harriman arrived in the US after the fall of Saigon, Vietnam in 1975, nobody knew the lasting impact she would go to have in greater Portland area in ME. With a big smile, hard work, and great food to share, she helped cultivate the Vietnamese community in Maine that stands strong today. When Tot was 57, she decided to move to Texas to be closer to her children. But in July of 2001 when she was going to look at homes, both Tot and her car vanished without a trace on Highway 35 between Houston and her destination of Corpus Christi. Her son, Chien Si fought tooth and nail to keep his mom's case in spotlight— to make people care… but without clues pointing to an answer, the attention on Tot's case tapered off, and the trail eventually went cold. To this day, her case remains unsolved. Some think her case is connected to the Texas Killing Fields, others think she may have gone off the road, or been abducted. Her family just wants to know the truth about what happened to their mom. This is part two of Tot Tran Harriman's story.
