Birth: Oct. 17, 1854
Death: Oct. 1, 1934

Born in Masamagrell, Valencia, Spain, The Servant Of God, Msgr. Luis Amigó y Ferrer, joined the Franciscan Capuchin Friars in 1874, in their Convent of Bayonne, France, and was ordained to the Priesthood in his native Spain, on March 29, 1879.

The Future Bishop founded the Hermanas Terciarias Capuchinas de la Sagrada Familia, on May 11, 1885, inside the Sanctuary of Nuestra Señora de Montiel in Benaguacil, and four years later, a Religious Congregation for Male, better known as the "Amigonianos".

Aged 52, he was named as Apostolic Administrator of the Diocese of Solsona, after Future Cardinal, Msgr. Juan Bautista Benlloch y Vivó, was transferred from the named See to the Diocese of Urgell. The Friar was in return appointed as Bishop of the Titular See of Thagaste, receiving his Episcopal Consecration on June 9, 1907, from Cardinal Aristide Rinaldini, assisted by Archbishop José Maria Salvador y Barrera, and the named Msgr. Benlloch y Vivó.

Msgr. Amigó kept his Office until July 18, 1913, when he was named as Bishop of the Diocese of Segorbe, following the demise of Bishop Antonio María Massanet y Verd, at the early age of 46.

The Capuchin Bishop died in Office, on October 1, 1934, aged 80. The Cause for his Beatification is in process.
