I was first exposed to the strong presence of Eduardo Verastegui in 2007 when watching the beautiful pro-life film Bella. I remember being amazed by how he could convey so much with a single facial expression . . . a look in the eyes that held so much meaning. Now that I think about it more, this expression, this look, was rooted in a deep commitment Eduardo had made in recent years: to do God's will rather than that of society.
Although I unfortunately was unable to interview Eduardo Verastegui for this post, I have prepared a video that highlights the profound influence he has had as a role model for Catholics (and, truly, all people) in a less-than-moral world. I have also included two videos at the end which emphasize his role as a pro-life speaker. Please feel free to share this post with others.

In addition to his role in BELLA, Eduardo Verastegui plays Blessed Anacleto Gonzalez in FOR GREATER GLORY, a film that chronicles the religious persecution of Catholics in Mexico in the 1920s.
