The Sacristan is a chapter in the satirical novel Noli Me Tangere of Dr. Jose P. Rizal, the Philippine National Hero written one and half centuries ago depicting the atrocities, cruelties, and abuses of the Spanish friars, conquistadors, ‘guardias del civil,’ and other religious authorities as well as the rich and powerful elitists during the Spanish Colonization of the Philippine Archipelago. It is also the story of Sisa, the mother of the two catholic sacristans, Basilio and Crispin who were killed by the Spaniards. The horrible death of her two beloved sons and the debasements she endure from people led her to lunacy at the end.
