Movie, For Greater Glory, released on DVD today.

“Tell Christ the King I shall be with him soon,” young José Sánchez del Río, reportedly told a fellow martyr of the Cristero War in Mexico, before he was murdered. His holy story is among those told in the movie, For Greater Glory, released on DVD today.

The movie is about the Cristero War and has been held up as an important story about religious liberty and the lengths some have had to go to defend their God-given right to live their religious faith.

“We tend to forget the human suffering because our modern culture cannot make sense” of it, Bishop Plácido Rodriguez, of the Catholic diocese of Lubbock, Texas, tells me. He calls the movie “timely, effective and powerful.” The story of the war is family history for Bishop Rodriguez, with family members who played roles in the struggle.

“I have been encouraging Catholics, Hispanics, believers, and anyone who values religious freedom to see the movie and to become interested in investigating the history”, he tells me.
