"Viva Cristo Rey! Viva la Virgin de Guadalupe!" was the war cry. Actual eye witness descriptions of the persecution of Catholics and the Church in Mexico (circa 1917-1926), especially of the Blessed Sacrament, priests and religious, by the Federales (Mexican Federal Police). The REAL revolutionaries were not the Cristeros but the anti-Catholic, Masonic regime. USA government support. The Vatican's interdict was a protective effort because the persecution was so vicious. In the countryside the war of the Cristiada began on August 3, 1924.The women were instrumental. When the war was declared ended the persecution escalated and the remaining Cristeros were hunted.

Which is why, we need to stay united as Catholics, and avoid division where and when possible. Thank you, Bernard for reminding us of that terrible time in history. There is a movie about the Cristeros called For Greater Glory. Excellent movie!

While we were trying to educate people on what could happen if Obama were re-elected to a second term, I was talking with my pastor and he was very worried about the possibility of clergy being persecuted and killed. He pointed out it hadn't been that many years since it happened in Mexico. He also shared what his grandma in Germany went through. She would hide a crucifix in the stable so while she was milking the cows she could look at it. She felt the Nazi's wouldn't want to go in her stable. My German sister-in-law saw her mother being interrogated when she was 9 months pregnant because of her faith. Yes, it can happen to us here. Little by little we are having are rights taken away and the public is being lied to continuously and desensitized to the point they don't know who or what to believe.

This is not in any way to take faway from the horrible Jewish slaughter in Nazi Germany, But thousands of Catholics were killed for their faith.

Why? I've never heard of such a thing. Was this an election thing? If so I don't want to replow that ground. Most Catholics weren't convinced and voted for Obama.
