Saint Jose: Boy Cristero Martyr
Fr. Kevin McKenzie
Brings to life the story of St. José Sánchez del Río, a 14 year old boy in Mexico who died a martyr for the Catholic faith during the Cristero War in the 1920s. Tortured and forced to march to his grave, he cried out, "Viva Cristo Rey!" (Long live Christ the King).
José died as he had lived, a hero. Inspired by this young martyr to become a priest himself, Father McKenzie spent ten years researching and writing José's story.
Canonized in 2016 by Pope Francis, St. José is one of the newest and youngest saints of the Catholic Church, and an inspiration to people from all walks of life. He shows us that our faith is worth fighting and dying for.
