Footsteps of Father Picx

He was a remarkable man who tirelessly followed in the footsteps of the Redeemer. Fr. Amado “Picx” Picardal, CSsR, touched countless lives through his steadfast commitment to peace, justice, and compassion.

We mourn not only in sorrow but also in gratitude for the sacrifices he made. His purposeful footsteps left behind a trail of hope, calling for transformation.

Fr. Picx’s journey was to explore the world, to understand its complexities, and to embrace its beauty. We mourn his sudden passing in a place of solitude and reflection.

We remember his brilliance and courage, fearlessly documenting the atrocities of the Davao Death Squad and shedding light on extrajudicial killings.

His voice demanded justice and accountability; he was more than a priest—he was a beacon of truth.

As we bid farewell to our brother, let us honor his memory by continuing the journey he started toward a more just and compassionate world.

Though Fr. Picx’s footsteps have ceased, his legacy endures. May his courage and memories forever guide us as a beacon of light.
