Today, Aug. 2, is the 213th birth anniversary of the secular priest and martyr, Mariano Gomez, one of the Gomburza priests. Born in Sta. Cruz, Manila, he believed that parishes should be secularized and turned over to Filipino priests. He was executed on Feb. 17, 1872, together with Jacinto Zamora and Jose Burgos for allegedly instigating the Cavite Mutiny that year. Schatzi Quodala, Inquirer Research
