For Greater Glory: Mexico's Untold Story

I cannot wait to go see this film this weekend! This movie is based on true events and people during the persecution of Catholics in Mexico in the 1920's (known as la Cristiada). My grandmother helped to teach catechism in secret and brought food to persecuted priests during this time. My grandfather and great uncles fought for the right to keep Catholic churches open and the right to openly practice their faith. My grandfather escaped execution by a firing squad, while my great uncles were martyred for their belief's. Go check out this movie and learn about this amazing part of Mexico's history that has for the most part been hidden until now!
