"For The Greater Glory"

"For the Greater Glory", a true story about the Cristados, a rebellion in Mexico soon after Russia's revolution in Russia in 1917. President Callas of Mexico was removing the Religious Fredom from his people. Mexican Catholics were persecuted, priests were killed if they continued to say Mass.   If you have not seen this movie, you must see it.

Peter O'Toole's performance sets the stage for the events that lead into the Cristado War.

GENERAL ENRIQUE GOROSTIETA, who lead those rebelling agianst President Callas, was portrayed by Andy Garcia.

Jose Luis Sanchez Del Rio, the young boy, having already been beatified by Pope John Paul II in 2005, is up for canonization. Mauricio Kuri could not play a sweeter young boy facing the ugly atrocities which led to the Cristado War.

People of all faiths need to be reminded what happens when a Government no longer allows its people to practice its faith with Freedom. Christians are reminded the Mandate Christ gave, to teach all Nations about Christ's Kingdom. This movie is a must see movie!!!

   Viva Cristo Rey!

As Forthnight for Freedom begins today, in response to the HHS Mandate in the United States, Catholics are praying for the removal of this burden as it goes against the consciences and teachings of the Catholic Church, and just as seriously, it is an attack on the Freedom of Religion.
