It was quite providential to meet two of the eye witnesses of our elder brothers on their way to martyrdom. They were Francisco Cece and Ricardo. Ricardo lived very close to our seminary and he still remembers that he saw his mother looking outside through the upper window and crying. As a child he was curious to see the sight that made his mother cry. It was heartbreaking for him as a child to see the Claretian missionaries captured and taken in custody by the anarchist and they were taken to Piarist Auditorium. Francisco Cece (93 years old now) and his family lived in Barcelona till 1935. In 1936 they came to Barbastro and settled near to the town hall. In those days it was common for the children to play in the streets. As he was playing together with his other companions he saw Luis Masferrer cmf who was his catechism teacher together with others were taken to Piarist School where he studied. He followed them in distance as child because he did not understand the seriousness of what is happening; but he was sad to see his catechism teacher is taken in custody by the anarchist. Fr. Santiago Mompel (Piarist) was his class teacher who later tells about Claretians. He was the Chronicler of their congregation who wrote in the Chronicle telling that he saw twenty Claretians were taken for execution from the Piarist school to a place three kilometers away from the school, and he could hear exactly twenty gun shots which he testifies that it was the execution of twenty Claretian brothers.
