    Citation Information. What made him especially happy was when he could do that directly one-on-one with native peoples. But even Serra could not overcome the forces massing against him. The exact date of his ordination into the priesthood is unknown. That paternalistic attitude could, at times, result in a behavior which anybody today would find very hard to justify.

    Aside from a few state-run missions— namely Mission La Purisma, Mission Sonoma, and parts of Mission Santa Cruz— Junípero Serra book said most church-run missions he's visited do a poor job of representing Indian history. Missions were established with much greater success and lesser suffering in other parts of the American continent — particularly by the Jesuits. They were not allowed to practice their traditional beliefs. He then became an itinerant preacher, gaining a reputation as a mesmerizing orator who could inspire, enthrall, and terrify his audiences at will.

    To keep the Indians free from sin. Even the most ardent Catholic historians now accept this is flat-out wrong. He chose to give up family and friends and a comfortable life in order to follow his dream of spreading Christianity to the New World. Along with probably 99 percent of the people in Europe at the time, he thought that non-Europeans were inferior to Europeans.

Serra, in his hope to save souls, unwittingly helped bring about the massive decline of California's indigenous population.

Serra took the long sea voyage to Spain's colonies. So, some did like him, and some thought that he was somebody who was destroying their way of life.
