Today, we celebrate the feast of St. Christopher Magallanes and Companions, martyrs.
It is a wonderful feast for today. These men are all part of the Cristero Movement in Mexico in the early 20th century. The struggle of these and others was portrayed with dignity in the recent film For Greater Glory.
In my world, it reminds me of what happened after I took my kids to see the movie. My youngest son asked ” would you give your life if something like that happened?” and before I could answer, he stated that he thought he would.
What great fire in such a small package, and great faith so simply stated by a small child.
Our Lady of Guadalupe, pray for us
