In the New Mexican priest, Chávez found a variety of admirable qualities. These include Martínez’s political liberalism, which he took from his own esteem for Padre Hidalgo and the movement for Mexican independence. Martínez supported los de abajo—the underdogs—in his society, such as the often-repressed Penitente brotherhood, and the santeros, whom both the Mexican hierarchy and the later American one frowned upon. Chávez further championed Martínez for his enlightened educational views. Fray Angélico noted that Padre Martínez operated one of the early printing presses in New Mexico, and he used the press to publish both religious and educational texts, including the first books ever printed in New Mexico.
