For Greater Glory

When they outlawed freedom, free men became outlaws.


This movie tells the true story of Mexico's Cristero War. This conflict, which took place from 1926 - 1929, caused the deaths of more than 250,000 people, was touched off by an anti-Catholic president who called for the eradication of religion in Mexico. This is not ancient history, nor did it take place in some far off land.

I've been reading about, and waiting for this movie to come out for some time now. I think it is indeed Divine Providence that it is finally being released at this point in time.

For Greater Glory opens in theaters on June 1. Check the website to find a showing near you. This could be the most important movie you see this year. Let's pray it's not prophetic as well.

  1. I, too, am anxiously awaiting this movie. Visitors to my blog may find they have to put up with my addressing some anti-Catholic myths in honor of its release.

  2. I hadn't heard anything about it, but it does look good. At the very least, finally a movie out of Hollywood I want to watch.

  3. It's not surprising that schools don't teach this. They don't mention the 1922 Oregon law outlawing parochial schools either.

    Those who don't know history are bound to repeat it.

    1. TC, let's hope it gets picked up by enough theaters that many folks can see it. I suspect the leftist press isn't going to give it much coverage.
