Victoriano Ramírez López, renowned as “El Catorce” after he killed 14 federal soldiers during a shootout, was a very flawed man: a thief, a drunk and a womanizer with many bastards.
But, somehow, he ended up on the right side of the Cristero War, when the Socialist Mexican government persecuted Catholics.
An outlaw, he was recruited into the Regiment of Jalpa de Canovas, because he was a great shot, fearless, insanely brave, and he had nothing to lose. No one loved him. No one even liked him, but he ended up fighting for a Holy Cause, a fight for the Faithful.
The life of El Catorce proves that each person has a part in God's perfect plan no matter how imperfect the person.
VIVA CRISTO REY!
