¡Viva Cristo Rey! The Cristeros and the Martyrs of the Mexican Revolution 3/13/2012

The average American’s understanding of Mexican history is incomplete. American Catholics, however, should know Mexican history, because unlike our own history, much of Mexican history is Catholic history. What is more, the brutal persecution of the Church in Mexico may well foreshadow that to come in the United States.

In the early part of the 20th Century a profound evil gripped Mexico. Masonic, Marxist revolutionaries, who were nothing less than the enemies of Jesus Christ, seized control of the government and attempted to destroy the Church. They very nearly succeeded. In the midst of the terror, courageous priests clandestinely made their way through the countryside dispensing the sacraments and ministering to the Mexican faithful. Many received the crown of martyrdom; the most famous is Blessed Miguel Pro. As these holy priests, ever in danger of their lives, fulfilled the duties of their divine vocations, an army of laymen rose up and challenged the godless Mexican government.  They were the Cristeros. Their battle cry was "¡Viva Cristo Rey!”  Their tale is one of the great Catholic war stories of all time.
