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.

What price would you pay for freedom? An impassioned group of men and women each make the decision to risk it all for family, faith and the very future of their country, as the film’s adventure unfolds against the long-hidden, true story of the 1920s Cristero War ­the daring people’s revolt that rocked 20th Century North America.

Issues:

  • Violence (controlled)
  • Some immodest dress

Trailer

The film depicts General Gorostieta, the retired military man who at first thinks he has nothing personal at stake as he and his wife  watch Mexico fall into a violent civil war. Yet the man who hesitates in joining the cause will soon become the resistance’s most inspiring and self-sacrificing leader, as he begins to see the cost of religious persecution on his countrymen . . . and transforms a rag-tag band of rebels into a heroic force to be reckoned with.  The General faces impossible odds against a powerful and ruthless government.  Yet is those he meets on the journey ­ youthful idealists, feisty renegades and, most of all, one remarkable teenager named Jose ­ who reveal to him how courage and belief are forged even when justice seems lost.

    So how does this work exactly? Do I see these videos here or is this just a list of those that are available all over and I have to go find them? Do I have to pay for this service to see these videos?

    This is a wonderful made film, with top actors. In the 1920’s, Mexico’s president, wreaked havoc on the Catholic population…..destroying churches, imposing punishments, and torturing/killing priests and other Christians. The Mexican people rose up against the tyrants in a story of extreme faith and bravery with an army under the guidance of a famous General. Their battle cry was “Viva Cristo Rey!!!” (Long live Christ the King!!!) After this war of Mexico’s history, the government forbade the mentioning of it in schools so that most people of Mexican descent are not aware of this fight for freedom. Today, there are Christian men, women, and children in the Middle East being horribly tortured and killed for their beliefs….those who will not renounce their Faith, much like the Mexican people in the 1920’s. This is a story of man’s determination to have the freedom to worship God.
