Topics:   Video: The Cristero Rebellion ...Novena: In Honor of the Saint Rafael Guizar y Valencia, Bishop and Confessor

+Well, I missed For Greater Glory in the theaters. Bummer! Oh well...I'll wait for the DVD to come out. With this in mind today seems to be a Mexican Catholic day due to the fact that Michael O Neill sent me information about a novena in honor of Saint Rafael Guizar. I also stumbled across a great video of actual Cristeros...old men who actually fought in  La Cristiada . WARNING: Soldier language ahead!!!

+I'm so excited. I figured out how to upload .pdf files. Yay! If you cannot read the pdf file (the window below with the scroll bars) there are zoom in/zoom out controls OR you can ctrl + mouse scroll button to enlarge the whole screen OR click on the Scribd logo beneath the video window to go Scribd where the file resides.

..and now for the necessaries.

Please note: St. Anthony Catholic Church is one of only two churches celebrating the Traditional Latin Mass (EFLR) in the Wichita area. Though this blog is loosely centered around this parish and it's members, Venite Missa Est! is by no means, in any way an official voice of, or for, St. Anthony Parish or the Diocese of Wichita. Venite Missa Est! is strictly a private layman's endeavor.


Video: The Cristero Rebellion

WARNING: Rough language and graphic images!!!!!!!!!!!!

The Cristero Rebellion (1926-1929): Plutarco Elias Calles enforces laws aimed at destroying the influence of the Catholic Church in Mexican Life. The factions of a corrupt Government are carried out by a violent army. The federales brutally murder those who oppose the anti-Catholic laws.


 Novena in Honor of the Saint Rafael Guizar y Valencia, Bishop and Confessor
by Father David Rodriguez, Diocese of El Paso
submitted by Michael O'Neill

Today is Day 1 (first day) of our Novena in Honor of the Saint Rafael Guizar y Valencia, Bishop and Confessor.

 San Rafael Guizar y Valencia was a holy and saintly Mexican bishop in Veracruz, during the time that the Mexican government of Pultarco Elias Calles enacted heavy measures against the Catholic Church and Faithful. This is the same time period of the Cristero's Defense of the Faith and Pius XI's proclamation of the Social Kingship of Christ. (For those who have seen the movie "For Greater Glory" - he was a bishop at the same time period). He was persecuted horribly and had to flee Mexico several times. In fact, his journeys brought him both to San Antonio and El Paso. When I lived in San Antonio I met his nephew, who was leading to promote devotion to San Guizar y Valencia in San Antonio, including have a statue dedicated to him. He was a very humble, poor and wise bishop, very talented as well in evading the Federal authorities who sought his life. He always sought alms for the poor and even did so on his own credit, which was purely spiritual, reminding the rich donors that "God Himself will repay this my debt to you." Although he did not die a a martyrs death, as many others did during this time, he suffered much - both from slander and physical ailments. Following several miracles, he was canonized a saint in 2006.
