The Feast of the Mexican Martyrs.


"Amen, amen, I say to you, you will weep and mourn, while the world rejoices; you will grieve, but your grief will become joy." (John 16: 20).

Thursday 21st May 2020, 6th Week in the Easter Season is also the feast of St Christopher Megallanes (1869 - 1927), Priest and Martyr and his companions, martyrs. Mexico massacred 21 priests and 3 lay men during the Cristeros movement during the 1920s.

Jesus predicted these events in the Last Supper Discourse: "Amen, amen, I say to you, you will weep and mourn, while the world rejoices; you will grieve, but your grief will become joy." The antagonism to Jesus and His Gospel is more pronounced today than ever. If you are not prepared today to bear witness to Jesus, what is the likelihood that you will be ready tomorrow? The Scripture says: O that today you will listen to His voice, harden not your hearts.
