Discussion and social hour to follow the presentation
Viva Cristo Rey! chronicles the true story of the Cristeros, who valiantly battled the enemies of the Catholic Church in Mexico in the early part of the 20th century. Their story was popularized in the recent Hollywood film, For Greater Glory, and we agree it’s a very timely subject due to the current political climate in the United States. Never has our freedom of religion been more threatened in America than it is today.
Christopher Check’s presentation is one Christians of all denominations should see because it demonstrates the brutal persecution of the Church in Mexico, and could well serve as a warning of the persecution that could come to the United States.
