The Greater Glory
We might not be called to die — as many did in the Cristero War did — for what we believe in. Viva Cristo Rey! Beautiful post. Fr Vega told the General about how God can turn tragedy into triumph. So, the legacy of Fr Christopher set off a chain of grace filled events, saving souls, giving witness to Christ, and winning partial victory for religious freedom. This is the normal way priests work in the Church, one which our priests are too seldom given credit for, since this action of grace has been overshadowed in the public eye by the sin of a handful of priests. We should thank the Fr Christophers in our parish for their preaching and example, and perhaps buy them a movie ticket!
And, yes, the greater majority of us are graced to have faithful priests in our midst, and we should let them know often how much we appreciate their sacrifice and service. God bless!
I am appalled by how the secular film critics have trashed this film. Does someone wish to discuss the films unpopular reception?
It does not suit their Marxist views. By the way, they did like the fictitious violent movie — Avatar.

I cant wait to see this movie…this era of history is the reason my husbands grandfather emigrated from Mexico to the US…I was told that his brother was killed and his family sent him away telling him never to return I dont know why…the family was Catholic but no Priests in the family. He settled in the northwest. He had a family but his wife died young. When my husband graduated from a respected university, they put his picture on the front page of the local paper where his grandfather lived.
We named our first son after him. I would love if this movie helped people gain a better appreciation for Mexican history and culture. The Obama administration intends to pervert the Church via federal mandate. Thank you, Sister Lisa, well written. I cannot wait for the chance to see this movie with my Sisters.
Great article sister! I urge all of you to research another Cristero martyr named Saint Toribio Romo. I was overwhelmed to see so many men with so much love and passion for the Eucharist and the Church.

They were willing put their life on the line for their bride. Ticket sales will force the critiques to eat their words. This is a wonderful movie with amazing story, acting, location, costumes, etc with everything perfect. The violence was to show truth and appropriate.

As generic as the title, this historical drama spares no cliche in depicting Mexico's Cristero War of the late It's the stuff of real life, and of high drama, but Dean Wright's directorial debut translates little of that latter quality to the screen. Unfortunately, the enemy is not just a repressive administration, but the audience. This historical drama about the little-known Cristero War in s Mexico is more educational than involving.
Despite enough good intentions to pave a four-lane highway, the ardently sincere but dramatically unfocused For Greater Glory plays like a multipart miniseries that has been hacked down to feature length.
'For Greater Glory' moving, but glosses over aspects of war | National Catholic Reporter
The sometimes painfully sincere and slow-moving "For Greater Glory" clearly aspires to be inspirational, but history won't cooperate. Read full review. The result is pretty much as forgettable as the Cristeros War. It is a scattered mess, as earnest as a folk song, but like a folk song that goes on for two hours and 23 minutes. Ultimately a stodgy, overblown and repetitive slog.
The jamming together of so much history and melodrama makes for a handsome movie that is only rarely gripping.
It's a powerful, visually elegant picture from first-time director Dean Wright. If Michael Bay woke up one day and said to himself, "I need to make a movie about religious persecution in s Mexico," I imagine it would look something like this. The scenes just plod along without much to help distinguish them.
