"We ask for repeal of Decree 62 that humiliates us," protested the Catholic townspeople of Tlalpujahua, on April 19, 1926, the decree that outlawed public worship, such as the the Holy Mass and the Sacraments.
Priests became enemies of the State during the Cristero War (1926–29), a civil revolt in Mexico against the anti-Catholic policies of the Mexican government, which enacted, under President Plutarco Elías Calles, a statute to enforce the anti-clerical articles of the Mexican Constitution of 1917, that sought to eliminate the power of the Catholic Church.
Countless faithful were martyred and 4,000 priests were martyred in or exiled from Mexico for offering the outlawed holy sacrifice of the Mass.
