For Greater Glory - Film of historic fight for Religious Freedom in Mexico - Now in theaters

News of the Diocese

May 30, 2012

What price would you pay for freedom?  In the exhilarating action epic For Greater Glory (formerly titled Cristiada) an impassioned group of men and women risk everything for family, faith and the very future of their country, as the film's adventure unfolds against the long-hidden, true story of the 1920s Cristero War - the daring people's fight for religious freedom that rocked 20th Century North America.

Academy Award nominee Andy Garcia headlines an acclaimed cast as General Gorostieta, the retired military man who at first thinks he has nothing personal at stake as he and his wife (Golden Globe winner Eva Longoria) watch Mexico fall into a violent civil war over the government's attempts to elimate the Catholic Church.  He was the last man to believe in their cause . . . but became the first willing to die for it as he begins to see the cost of religious persecution on his countrymen.

"For Greater Glory is a top-flight production whose message of the importance of religious freedom has particular resonance for us today" says Most Reverend Jose Horacio Gomez, Archbishop of Los Angeles.
