Our Viva Cristo Rey design was inspired by the film “For Greater Glory” and is a statement about protecting our religious freedom just as the Cristeros did in the Cristero Rebellion of 1926–1929. A war Blessed Miguel Pro was martyred for in protecting his Catholic faith.
At his execution, he spoke to executioners; “May God have mercy on you! May God bless you! Lord, Thou knowest that I am innocent! With all my heart I forgive my enemies!” Before the firing squad were ordered to shoot, Pro raised his arms in imitation of Christ and shouted the defiant cry of the Cristeros, “Viva Cristo Rey!” -“Long live Christ the King!”
