Jose Rizal Philippine Match Company Safety Matches Matchbook Sticker (MB515)

Jose Rizal is a critical figure in Philippine history — his face graces the 2 peso note.  He was a passionate advocate for his country’s independence from Spain, ultimately inciting the resurrection that overthrew Spanish colonial rule.  For his role in this revolution Rizal was executed.  In his lifetime he did a number of extraordinary things, including beginning to read at the age of 3, obtaining numerous, widespread degrees in medicine and law  though ultimately he specialized in ophthalmology as his mother was going blind.  Eventually he found himself in Berlin, and, ultimately delivered an address in German on the structure of the Tagalog language.  He spoke 22 languages, wrote novels, and was a skilled graphic artist.  On September 30, 1896 he was executed by a Spanish firing squad, as he was shot, he said, “Consummatum est”, the same words as Jesus Christ, “It is done.”  In his final letter he wrote, “Tomorrow at 7, I shall be shot; but I am innocent of the crime of rebellion.  I am going to die with a tranquil conscience.”  His civil disobedience was so profound and so sincere that it toppled Spanish rule.
