Editorial Reviews

Based on the admirable life of Miguel Agustin Pro; a man whose great Mission led him to vigorously pass on his faith to fellow Mexican Christians, during the times of the Revolution, Christian war and religious persecutions, he dedicated himself to imitate Christ's example in spite of his bad health, creating organizations to help homeless people during the war among many other things, he managed to hide from the government until he was caught and shot. With his life he provided an example that help the union of the Catholic Faith and became a Martyr for Christ.

Basada en la admirable vida de Miguel Agustín Pro, un hombre cuya gran vocación lo llevo a transmitir su fe a los cristianos en México; durante la época de la revolución, guerra cristera y persecuciones religiosas, se dedico a predicar con el ejemplo de Cristo a pesar de su mala salud, creando organizaciones de ayuda para los desamparados de la guerra entre muchas otras cosas, logro ocultarse ingeniosamente del gobierno hasta que finalmente fue apresado y fusilado por órdenes del Gobierno. Con su vida dio un ejemplo que unió la Fe Católica y se convirtió en mártir por Jesús.

5.0 out of 5 stars Powerful and heart-moving June 22, 2012
Verified Purchase
After I saw this movie for the first time, I can tell this is one of the few movies that moved my heart so much that made me cry and thank God for what the Mexican martyrs did to sustain the faith in Mexico. If it were not for the people who were willing to sacrifice for their faith and the Glory of God (together with the intercession of Our Lady of Guadalupe), Mexico easily could have been another USSR-like socialist country, without any religious liberty (at least, for sure, during those years following the Cristeros defense).
This movie helped me understand how dire the situation was in Mexico after the Mexican Revolution and how fragile religious freedom can be if the government starts attacking or limiting it "slowly in a gradual way".
I have bought more copies of the DVD to share with others.

4.0 out of 5 stars Miguel Pro: A soft-spoken martyr April 7, 2013
I knew about Father Miguel Pro who was martyred for his devotion to Catholics. The fact that he did this in spite of the socialist Mexican government prohibiting any public worship, laity dressing in their attire and persecuting people of faith. He pays the ultimate price and does it with humility and devotion.

The film is decent but the production values are grade B/C. The emotional feeling carries this movie about a humble but devoted Jesuit priest who wanted to serve God and fellow believers.

Es la historia de un padre que contribuyo de manera importante en la cristeada. Aunque la mayoria de los actores no son reconocidos la historia es real y muy interesante.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Historical Movie About A Modern Martyr September 20, 2012
By Ricardo
This production about Padre Miguel Pro was fascinating and very colorfull. It kept my interest until the very end even though the final scene is shown at both the beginning and the ending of the film. The movie concentrated on the life of Padre Pro from when he begins his religous training until his death in Mexico City. In between we are treated to beautiful scenes of both Mexico and Europe where he must go to continue his religous training after the socialist government of Mexico begins its suppression of the Catholic Church. Anyone who mistakenly believes that socialism is kind and benovelent is unaware of the attempts by the Mexican government to destroy the Catholic Church in Mexico. This sad part of history is not taught in the US, even though it is of great interest to a growing hispanic population and of course to the very large Catholic community. While the movie does not get into the reasons for the government crackdown, other than the conflict over Church decrees; it does show the extreme violence that was carried out against the church. This is a good family film, that is to say it is not overly violent and as I said before it concentrates on the good works of Padre Pro.

5.0 out of 5 stars Could this happen again, in the US ? December 16, 2013
Verified Purchase
This religious persecution in Mexico was very real, and not so long ago. Could it happen again ? And here in the US ?
Padre Pro died by a firing squad made up of his fellow citizens. Chilling thought. Those who do not read history are doomed to repeat history.
