Ave Maria!

The movie For Greater Glory, The True Story of the Cristiada will come out on June 1st. It is based on the true the story of the Cristeros War (1926-1929) where the Mexican Catholic people rebelled against the anti-Catholic government who made the celebration of Mass a capital offense. They had the motto “Viva Cristo Rey!” Long Live Christ the King! The movie has an impressive cast with the Academy Award Nominees, Andy Garcia, Peter O’Toole,  and Catalino Sandino Moreno. It seems to be a well made movie by an up-and-coming production company, New Land Films, who are unafraid to tell the untold story of the persecution of Catholics in our modern times.

Hat tip to Bob Fox.
