About Burnt Tortillas

Burnt Tortillas tells the story of the Bishop of the Barrio. The Venerable Alphonse Gallegos was a visually impaired Mexican American kid who grew up in the Watts neighborhood of LA and went on to become a friend to gang members, lowriders, struggling parents, migrant workers—to every one of his people.

As a priest and then as a bishop, Father Al was famous for his advocacy, fighting against abortion and nuclear arms, fighting for workers rights and access to education.


But Gallegos was not driven by issues; every battle he fought was about a person and every person he knew felt absolutely, unconditionally loved by the Bishop of the Barrio.
