Teófilo de Jesús

Teófilo de Jesus is the name Pedro Vega adopted when he became a lay Oblate of St. Benedict attached to St. Vincent’s Archabbey in Latrobe, Pennsylvania. Teófilo holds a B.A. in theology from St. Mary’s University of San Antonio, TX, and will soon start studies to earn an M.A. in pastoral theology from St. Joseph’s College of Maine. He is also a retired Naval Officer and an Afghanistan combat veteran. The former blogger of the Vivificat blog and current Knight of Columbus, Teófilo or “Theo” is the father of two and grandfather of four. He and his wife of 32 years live in the Washington, D.C. metropolitan area, where they tend assiduously to their three beloved basset hounds. His opinions are his own and in no way representative of the organizations he belongs to.
