Mexican Catholic priest Pedro de Jesus Maldonado Lucero was arrested, on February 10, 1937 (Ash Wednesday), by government henchmen who had discovered his hiding place on a ranch.
They dragged him barefoot to the town hall, where they beat him and shot him, fracturing his skull and causing his left eye to explode.
The Cristero priest had brought with him a pyx containing the Eucharist, and his attackers took the Hosts, put them in his mouth and ordered him to eat them, not realizing they were fulfilling the priest's last wish, for as a seminarian, he once said to the rector, "I have thought of always having my heart in heaven and in the Tabernacle."
