On June 4, 2018, we celebrated the 150th anniversary of Br. Miquel Palau’s birth and on October 16, 2019 we commemorated the 90th anniversary of his death. This exemplary Claretian brother, whose cause for beatification has been already introduced, was characterized for leading a life marked by the evangelical features of a deep union with God and a humble and helpful relationship with his fellowmen.

He spent all his life among tools of masonry, almost always in Cervera, where he died.

We are very pleased to present a research work carried out with part of our documentary collection. In this case, it is about some complete work done by Josep Mª Badia, a relative of Brother Palau. On June 4, it was the 150th birth anniversary of this illustrious son of Serrateix (Berguedà, Catalonia).

This work has been published in the magazine Montbordó. Bulletin of the Board of Friends of Serrateix (Year XLI, Number 43, October 2018, pages 4 to 14). The article is a complete tour on Brother Palau’s life. It is very well documented with an interesting display of photographs.

We welcome the publication of this research and appreciate the authorization given to us by the author to make it known through our website.
