For Greater Glory: The True Story of Cristeros

An inside look at the new motion picture "For Greater Glory." This special chronicles the history of the Cristero War with interviews from leading historians, several cast members, and Catholic leaders.

As the Catholic Blogosphere is abuzz with this new and profoundly pro-Catholic film, many of you may be unaware of the Cristeros and the great persecution of the Catholic Church only 100 years ago.  This film is a testament to the Catholic Faith- in its timeless beauty of the Traditional Latin Mass - and how even simple people can be called to lay down their lives for the Church.

The above video (approximately 26 minutes in length) features a trailer of the film and interviews concerning the Cristero War.  Find the film in a theater near you and help the ratings for this film.

We surely can all pray the Battle Hymn of the Cristeros:
The Virgin Mary is protector and defender against that we fear
She will vanquish demons with a cry of "Long live Christ King!" (x2)
Soldiers of Christ, let us follow this flag, for its cross points to the army of God
Let us follow the flag and declare, "Long live Christ King!"
