Fletch For Greater Glory



New movie out soon, based on a true story of the Cristeros war in Mexico 1926, when the Govt tried to outlaw Catholicism and other religions. The blurb at Brietbart says of the movie -


The film, “For Greater Glory,” hits theaters on June 1 and tells a little known chapter of Mexican history — the Cristero War of 1926 to 1929, which pitted an army of devout Catholic rebels (led in the movie by Andy Garcia) against the government of Mexican President Plutarco Calles (played by Ruben Blades).

For Catholics enraged by the Obama administration’s proposed contraception mandate, the film about the Mexican church’s fight in 1920s is a heartening and timely cinematic boost in the American church’s battle to preserve “religious freedom” in 2012.

For other Catholics and non-Catholics, the film is, more simply, action, suspense and a good cast. Besides Garcia and Blades, there’s “Desperate Housewives” star Eva Longoria and the legendary actor Peter O’Toole.
 For a fuller account of the story, you can download an audio talk on the subject by Patrick Madrid for $2.50 from Lighthouse Catholic Media
