Mexican priest, Padre José Ramón Miguel Agustín Pro Juárez, also known as Blessed Miguel Pro (born 1891) was executed, on November 23, 1927, for being Catholic.
As he stood before his executioners, with a rosary in one hand and a crucifix in the other, Pro raised his arms in imitation of Christ and shouted the defiant cry of the Mexican Cristeros, Viva Cristo Rey! (Long live Christ the King!)
After the firing squad failed to kill him, a soldier walked up to the priest and shot him at point-blank range.
VIVA CRISTO REY!
