Fr. Fausto Tentorio, PIME (1952-2011)
He was ambushed on October 17, 2011 by suspected elements of Philippine military. He was a an advocate and defender of indigenous people’s rights and the environment. He ws parish priest of Arakan, North Cotabato at the time of his death.

I may not have known him personally but through his acts of kindness and courage in defense of the national minority, the environment and of just peace in Mindanao, his memory will forever reside in the hearts and minds of the people in struggle for that very same cause.

Long live your memory and struggles, Fr Pops!
