Jose Rizal Profile

Jose Protasio Rizal Mercado y Alonso Realonda, popularly known as national hero Jose Rizal, was born on June 19, 1861 in Calamba, Laguna. Rizal was the key leader of the propagandist movement, with his literary works and unjust execution serving as the catalyst for the subsequent revolution and eventual Philippine independence from Spain. He was a writer, an opthalmologist, a polymath, and a Filipino patriot.

His popular works included novels which pushed for political reforms and recognition of the Filipino, namely El Filibusterismo and Noli Me Tangere and several literary pieces. He was unjustly accused and summarily executed by the Spanish government in Bagumbayan Manila on December 30, 1896 by firing squad.
Personal Life of Jose Rizal
➢ Rizal was the seventh born of the eleven children in the Rizal family. His Filipino parents Francisco Mercado and Teodora Realonda were rich farmers in Calamba Laguna and had Chinese-Spanish lineage. Fondly called "Pepe", Jose learned to read and write at an early age of five. Historian Austin Craig also claimed that Rizal was a descendant of Lakandula, the famed Rajah of Tondo from the pre-colonial era.

Due to the order of Governor General Francisco Claveria, Jose's Father Francisco Mercado was forced to adopt the surname Rizal (which meant Green Rice Fields), hence the change to Francisco Mercado Rizal.

Jose Rizal — What said those two souls communicating

Jose Rizal - Quote

Jose Rizal - “What said those two souls communicating through the language of the eyes, more perfect than that of the lips, the language given to the soul in order that sound may not mar the ecstasy of feeling? In such moments, when the thoughts of two happy beings penetrate into each other’s souls through the eyes, the spoken word is halting, rude, and weak—it is as the harsh, slow roar of the thunder compared with the rapidity of the dazzling lightning flash, expressing feelings already recognized, ideas already understood, and if words are made use of it is only because the heart’s desire, dominating all the being and flooding it with happiness, wills that the whole human organism with all its physical and psychical powers give expression to the song of joy that rolls through the soul. To the questioning glance of love, as it flashes out and then conceals itself, speech has no reply; the smile, the kiss, the sigh answer.”
