He was known in the music and film industy as José Mojica. Mojica joined the world of the American film industry before entering religious life. Together with Dolores del Río, Tito Guízar, Ramón Novarro and Lupe Vélez, he was among the few Mexicans to make history in the early years of Hollywood. Regarding his activity as a friar, singer and actor, he felt that religion and art have never been at conflict. He said, "If God gave me the grace of voice and singing skills, I use them for His glory." (Submitted on October 16, 2016, by J. Makali Bruton of Querétaro, Mexico.)
